Can I change the LJ home page banner, please? I hate football...;)
Well at least it wasn't too noisy last night. Dirk was sure Germany would have lost but they actually won. I said he could watch it if he wanted to but he was quite happy for us to watch the 3rd Millennium film again on DVD...we have watched all three in the last three nights. Fun for me to say 'Oh I have been there'! every so often. ;) I didn't go on the Millennium tour
in Stockholm because the days it was on did not coincide very well with my visit but I got one of the maps and went to the sites in Södermalm. Which is most of them. ;)
I actually refuse to buy those books or the DVDs myself because the money from them goes to Stieg Larsson's horrible brother and father and not to his partner, whom it SHOULD go to...I got them from the library instead.
Anyway we had a nice visit to Frankfurt Zoo yesterday. I always have mixed feelings about zoos because of course it's really not fair for the animals to be there, but at least they are safe there from stupid Chinese people and others...and if the environment they are given is not so bad it's something at least...this one is mostly ok apart from where the hippos live, it doesn't look like THEY have enough space...:S but anyway.
I have some photos of course...although Dirk's are always better. He brought a huge lens and his monopod...I called him the Animal Paparazzo, ha ha...;) there was another guy there with a huge lens as well at one point and he seemed to try to compete with Dirk...but hey, stupid guy didn't have a monopod so he couldn't keep taking the photos for as long as Dirk, ha ha...;) those lenses are very heavy.
Anyway...some photos...( Read more... )
