Train Strike is Over…

Fortunately the train strike is over but the weather sucks. Have to break out the umbrella.

Yesterday we took a trip with Roswitha to Ludwigshafen which is right outside of Mannheim. There is an exhibition space and museum. I’m sorry to report that this was the ugliest town I have been to yet. No charm and hardly any people on the street. Reminded me of a film where there was a nuclear accident and only a handful of people survived.

The weather didn’t help much. Very depressing. After we left the Kunstverein, we ventured over to the museum. Again another sad place. Probably one of the worst I have ever been to. The permanent collection was terrible. They had a very small Jackson Pollack. It looked as if they said to him, “we can only afford 3 feet so can you cut us off a piece?” Other than a Kurt Schwitters and a few fluxes pieces, there is no point in going to this post apocalyptic place.

Also congrats to Emi and Arun. They took the plunge and are officially living together.

Here are a few photos that were in the suitcase that Roswitha found on the street. Hopefully the print will survive the trip home. It’s a very powerful piece but extremely delicate.

Anyway other than the above, our time here is coming to an end. Bitter sweet.

Still hashing out the story and making progress. Probably will have a huge breakthrough soon:
