Spring at the Oracle

The oracle is doing it's best to living up. Well, the spring decoration actually looked nicer in real life. And there were life musicians at the oracle today playing classical pieces, so it was a nice atmosphere. I guess you can't get more from a shopping centre outside of London.

Although it got cold and chilly again here in Reading the cherry blossom season started. This is in front of the Physics Building on UoR Campus. It's a pity I'm leaving for Germany otherwise we could have a nice O-Hanami Picnic under the trees. But maybe there are some nice cherry blossoms in Germany, too.

Oops, I never really posted this one. So I just do it now (20.04.) without further comment

There are crazy people out there

You can't complain that there is nothing going on in Reading. There are always crazy people who keep you entertained. This night someone stopped his car in the middle of the road in front of our house, locked the doors and went away never to be seen again.

The police came and tried to calm down the traffic (luckily it was late and therefore not too crowded). Then the tow-away truck came and things went back to normal. But for half an hour it was real fun.
