Being a good tourist: Full moon hike onto the Lion’s Head 

Being in a foreign country for a longer period I have this naive idea that I will move there, eat all the food the country has to offer, learning the local language in not time and off course getting forever lasting friendships with local people, doing local stuff. Well, to get this feeling of home, the feeling of ‘knowing where you are’ and feeling safe you have to start out as tourist and, you guess it….doing touristic stuff :D!

So when a group of students asked me to do with them the full moon hike on the mountain top called Lion’s Head I grabbed My camera, put on the worst possible clothes for hiking (a beautiful, flower patterend, synthetic shirt and quite elegant shoes) and an insufficient amount of water I went with them! Glad I did it! This pictures are result of a sweaty, exhausting and tough hike we even tried to do fast enough to get on top to see the sunset. It was worth every drop of sweat! Being actually above the clouds, seeing the transition of the city from daylight scenario to a full moon night and climbing slowly and carefully back down in the full moon light (it was taking more than one hour!) were priceless experiences! (It really didn’t cost anything ;-) ). The moment when you’re back down, seeing a chain of lights from the downclimbing hikers’ flashlights, surrounding the mountain as it was a christmastree was a great finish to that. I’m sorry that cameras cannot actually get all of the beauty. Enjoy the pictures!

Mein Leben als Tourist: Die Vollmond-Wanderung auf the Lion’s Head (Kopf des Löwen)

Ich habe die naive Idee gehabt, dass wenn Ich in einem anderem Land für längere Zeit sein würde, sofort die landestypischen Speisen essen würde, die Sprache des Landes innerhalb einer Woche spräche und natürlich auch sofort Freunde fürs Leben unter den Einheimischen finden würde und mich komplett wie ein Einheimischer benehmen würde. “Bloß nicht wie ein Tourist aussehen!” war dabei immer meine verkrampfte Devise. Nun! Wenn man sich in seiner neuen Umbgebung heimisch fühlen möchte gibt es eigentlich keinen Weg daran vorbei als, Ihr ahnt es……als  Tourist zu starten :D!

Als vor einer Woche eine Gruppe Studenten mich frug die Vollmondwanderung auf den Lion’s Head zu machen, einer der erklimmbaren Gipfeln hier in Kapstadt habe Ich nicht gezögert, meine Kamera genommen, die schlechtmöglichste Kleidung angezogen die Ich hatte (ein blumgengemustertest Synthetik-Shirt und meine relativ eleganten Straßenschuhe) und eine viel zu kleine Flasche Wasser mitgenommen und Los ging es! Wie froh war Ich, dass Ich es getan habe! Diese Fotos sind die Frucht eines schweißtreibenden, ermüdenden und schwierigen Auf(und Ab)stieges den wir sogar hochgeeilt sind in der Hoffnung den Sonnenuntergang nicht zu verpassen. Es war jeden Tropfen Schweiß wert! Über den Wolken, den Übergang der Stadt getaucht in Tageslicht zu einer in Vollmondlicht getauchten Kulisse beobachtend und danach den im Mondlicht beleuchteten Pfad (eine Taschenlampe war auch im Spiel ;) ) wieder runterkletternd, in mehr als einer halben Stunde waren unbezahlbare Erfahrungen (wenn auch gratis ;-) )! Wieder unten, auf den Lion’s Head zurückblickend kann man die Parade runterkletternder Wanderer mit Taschenlampen in der Hand als eine, den Berg umschlingende, Lichterkette wahrnehmen. Leider kann eine Kamera (und schon gar nicht meine!) die wahre Schönheit dieses Spektakels einfangen, Trotzdem viel Spaß mit den Bildern!

One of the things that is really notable about Moscow and yet not many people outside Russia know about, is how gorgeous the Moscow metro is.

These photos? That’s what the metro stations look like.

Yeah.

They’re called the “People’s palaces of Moscow” or else “Underground palaces,” and they were built during the Soviet era on the Communist idea that art and beauty should belong to the people rather than only being available in the houses of nobles.

These photos show just some of the metro’s attractions. There are many more mosaics, statues, etc, placed throughout.

And the metro is always this clean.

In addition to being beautiful, it is incredibly functional. It gets you pretty much everywhere in Moscow, and the trains run at intervals of every three minutes or less. At peak times, they run every 90 seconds. You never have to worry about missing a train, because the next one will come almost immediately.

Not always of course. In the late evening or early morning hours, you may have to wait as long as five whole minutes for a train. They’re also super easy to navigate.

We Russians are pretty proud of our metro system.
