Observations about the universe, life, Lausanne and me

Friday, January 11, 2008


Yes, bleak was January in Kaltenleutgeben (The cold knelling if you want, although the word comes really from Kalk, German for lime), the village of my parents. Actually, the whole east of Austria was covered in fog since mid-December - bleak, bleak, bleak.
I am quite happy to be back in Lausanne. Fog is frequent here as well, but at least there are some days where you can see the sun...


  1. Bleak - yet beautiful. I must find my way to Austria someday.

  2. Ha, wait until you see "bleak - yet beautiful" for about a month. Nope, after my PhD I have to get a post-doc somewhere sub-tropical.
