You Better Start Swimming Or You'll Sink Like A Stone

The Alster Lake.
Hamburg, Germany.
February 2011.

I had to go to university early today to pick up a couple books at the library. The campus is close to the Alster Lake, and this morning the weather was much too beautiful to go home right away... so I decided to walk along the lakefront for a while. It's amazing how different the scenery looks at night

Click here for an article on the National Geographic website that made my day. I've read a few articles and seen a documentary about the underwater cave systems on the Yucatan Peninsula in the past. This article is so well-written that I felt the same excitement the divers must've felt. 

Wherever you may be, I hope you're enjoying a sunny day, too.

That must be nice to walk along such a pretty scene. I love National Geo too - also National Geographic Traveler. It seems we've got photography, music and magazines in common!

T.: Yes, it is! It's so gorgeous. There used to be National Geographic Adventure, too. We do!

Manfred: I reckon you like the picture? If so, thank you :-)

what a lovely place to be so close to so often! i'd want to make weekly visits to this lake with my puppy and a good book to read.
