Definitely need a better camera…
It turns out you can actually see the alps from my apartment… sort of:
I hadn’t noticed this before. As you can see it’s just a little gap in between the buildings, but hey, it’s still kind of nice.
Fun in the, er, rain:
I say we shall have to practice this at a later day.
Well – Not quite. I fell asleep sometime after 4pm and woke up sometime after 9pm. Guess I really needed it – the sucky part is, it will just result in insomnia again. I know they say you should get about seven to eight hours of sleep per night; I get around six on a good night. Usually, it’s between four and five. If you think that’s cool in any way, then you clearly never had this problem.
Tomorrow I’ll go on a little road trip with two of my co-workers; I hope that’ll tire me out enough for a good night’s sleep.
Some night views from my new apartment.
1528And as you can see I’m still uploading photos from old trips. This time, I have added [photos](/v/deutschesmuseum2004/) from my [day-trip to the German Museum in Munich](/2004/03/24/munich-german-museum/). That was was in 2004, and a truely geek-worthy destination as you will see from the photos.
1546Went to the **Deutsches Museum** (“German Museum”) today. Despite it’s name, it’s really all about technology. It’s a great destination for a geek. They have everything there: Rockets, helicopters, planes, ships, train engines, typography devices including one my dad used to use when I was a kid, an old Zuse and even a cray supercomputer. I didn’t take a photo of the later because some female school girl was sitting on the bench around it and I didn’t feel like coming across as the old guy who either chases kids away, or tries to take photos of 15 year old girls. (Don’t think they would have understood the significance of the CRAY.)
The trip overall was pretty fun even though the Weather was totally crappy, however. To make up for it, the host of the show “Aktenzeichen XY… UngelÃ¶st” sat next to me (nice guy really), and on the flight back our plane was hit by lightning.
So it was an exciting day.
