The crowd was excited and consisted of people of all ages and races. There was a lot of cheering in the beginning and one (I assume drunk) enthusiastic young person yelled out ‘God Bless America’ every once in a while much to everyone else’s amusement. There was a thick fog in the sky which dispersed the light of the fireworks in unique mysterious ways. At times, it looked like the whole sky was alight. The fog also made the fireworks that burst in the lower heights look ultra sharp in contrast. Nothing says welcome to the USA like these fireworks and these people.
Sometimes I feel restless and feel the need to fill up my life with impossible busy-ness. Oldenburg is a very slow city. Edinburgh´s pace was just right… No people here. No great events.. Feels blank and empty sometimes unless the mind is adequately preoccupied.
Some of my old friends from Sydney stayed over for (too) few days. It was really fun. We went to Arthur’s Seat again…veerrrry windy!!
