Landart Munich?

Ever wondered whether there may be any landart in Munich?

Well, search no longer. There is. There probably wouldn’t have been any without storm “Niklas” 2015. It was then that some Munich residents around instigator Lore Galitz decided to knuckle down to work with and for nature.

As both local and international press Sueddeutsche Zeitung, Muenchner Merkur, Hallo Muenchen or Sendlinger Anzeiger reported, this is a highly fugacious, creative yet sustainable piece of work.

Feeling sad about the destruction, being able to see the good in change, fearing climate changes: one could NOT notice the changing looks of “Sendlinger Wald”. With its 60 ha (Westpark has 70 ha) it is popular with dog owners, athletes, fresh air enthusiasts. And Land artists.

In case you visit Munich for Oktoberfest make sure you see this very interesting piece of work.

How many minutes work for a “Big Mac”

How many minutes work for a “Big Mac”

So you’re not a tourist – you live here? Lucky you. Munich is probably THE most beautiful city in the world.

Let’s talk about finances now. And let’s assume the global currency should be a hamburger of a certain globally active food company. In Munich, you’d have to work 15 minutes to earn such a hamburger.

“Eat – or pay the rent?”, I overheard a conversation of two young women standing in the lunch-time sun (no, not outside McDonalds) discussing finances. Widespread phenomenon? In Germany’s larger cities the income usually is equally high. Having said that, do hairdressers, teachers, bus-drivers heavy earners? Not really. We require their services but the housing situation in Munich is driving them out of town.

Perhaps rather be a tourist again?

5 X OBAMA!

Today I’d like to introduce to you a very talented Munich lady indeed. I met her when life for me was not exactly on the sunny side. Ariane, too has known both valleys and mountain tops to wander. Just in time it seems, she did a portrait of the re-elected B. Obama. Congratulations to you both !
