Since arriving yesterday lunchtime I have done little else but eat and sleep. Chatting to my parents and watching a bit of TV, that's it.
Different carp recipe last night, pan-fried fillets with pomegranates and a field salad, better than the usual poached recipe. Yum.
Lunch today was a huge haunch of venison with Serviettknödel and red cabbage. Dinner tonight was various smoked fish, selection of cheeses and hams.
I definitely won't be losing any weight during this stay, not with all the food. The alcohol doesn't help, either, I don't drink that much usually.

It's a bit wintery here, just under freezing with a light dusting of snow. Not quite White Christmas but could be worse.

A very relaxing holiday so far and I hope everybody else is having the same.

Oh, and a belated happy International [livejournal.com profile] eddyfate day!

Wandered around the fairground, the marquee and the outside sitting area a couple of times without meeting anyone, had a pair of Bratwürste for dinner, finally found my parents in the marquee so I could steal some beer.
Did run into two old schoolmates, a girl from primary and a bloke from middle school, as well as my "little" neighbour. With the exception of Claudia, none of them live in Selb anymore, either, but they'll always be back for the town festival.
Took some photos of rides and stuff which might be online later tonight.

The weather is perfect, too, warm and sunny, not too hot or cold. Let's hope it stays that way, at least for the parade and games tomorrow.

This photo was taken from our back garden at 200mm. The webcam from the earlier post is on the large grey tower (former military listening post into the East), the small tower in the webcam pic can just be seen to the left of the big tower in the large photo (where the trees in the foreground come up to the slope of the hill). 10, 15 years ago, you wouldn't have been able to see the small tower because of the dense trees. Now many trees are dead like elsewhere in central Europe. Acidic rain and bark-beetles being the main causes.
