Halfpipe action in the Rheinaue Bonn

As it is well known, Bonn got the biggest outdoor Halfpipe for miles

As the spring is slowly ending and summer is coming up there is a very good change to witness some highflying action there. Flying around 5 m above the ground is no rarity if the right ones are there.

Here some impressions from 3 weeks ago.

By the way, it is quiet possible to join a barbeque there if you come on a sunny day and further more:

there is the initiative

cairo by day

It has been a while we have seen Cairo by day.

Now we do invite you on a small visual journey through downtwon Cairo and Zamalek island.

The city did change since 2013, the last time we have been there. A bit less anarchy,  more security personal on the streets… same chaos in the traffic and a daily helicopter hovering around checking for uprest. The murials in memory of the people who died during 2011 and 2012 are still there on mohamed mahmoud street, as is a lot of other art in the streets.

Cairo continious to be very safe in the matter of crime compared to any other city with more than 1 Million inhabitants (estimated number for Cairo: 18 Million).

Enjoy the ride
