stop u.s. airbase ramstein - stop wars

what a protest in front of the biggest u.s. military (air) base outside the USA in ramstein / germany => let's stop it :-)

also this year there was a protest week against war in general and against the u.s. military base(s) in germany in particular. three friends of mine + me from the montagsdemo / montagsmahnwache group for peace from munich joined the peace camp from friday till sunday.

if you asked me, the camp was like a hippie music festival: nice people, (political) song writers and music groups, bonfires, beer, interesting talks with other peace activists ...
my favorite musician was kilez more (aka kevin) from austria. he has such a power to spark and to thrill people. let's listen to his performance, a short two-minutes-video-here.

at the major event, the peace demonstration and sitting blockade in front of the gates of the u.s. military air base on saturday, i liked most the speach of sahra wagenknecht, one of the leaders of german opposition party 'die linke'. just listen to her motivational words for peace:

enjoy few pictures:

russia spends on military less than 10% what NATO spends => WHO THREATENS WHOM, my dears?
 NATO = North Atlantic Terror Organizations (which initiates aggression wars around the globe against countries which never threatened NATO: iraq, syria, serbia, libya, afghanistan, ...)
kilez more + morgaine
the sitting blockade of the air base was successful for about one hour
we enjoyed also the nature ...

lake maisinger see + canyon + flower field + our number 1 beer garden maisinger seehof

lake maisinger see is our favorite lake & beer garden (maisinger seehof) close to munich. it is just 30-40 minutes away from our home, so we are often many times a week here in summer. 

recently we have visited also the nearby maisinger canyon (maisinger schlucht) and a flower field, where the people can collect their flowers and pay honestly by themselves in the in place money box.
enjoy few pictures:

lake tegernsee ~ beautiful bavaria :-)

next of our short day trips was the lake tegernsee close to munich. well, i've got many presents at my farewell party from my old colleagues when i left our department @BMW after 7 years. they were probably happy they've got rid of me, weren't they? or maybe the liked me in some way or the other, who knows?

neuhaus am inn + bayerischer wald

what a nice long weekend in the region of bayerischer wald, the most east part of bavaria.

well, my wife was busy healing / teaching a small group of friends, i enjoyed the opportunity to hike in the surrounding mountains of bavarian forest. as the weather was really nice, we could also swim each day in nearby lakes, walk from our hotel in neuhaus am inn over a bridge on the river inn to the medivial city of schärding in austria, enjoy breakfasts and dinners together and much more :-)

enjoy few pictures
