  • - 21 NOV 19.51 p.m. UGaisberg, UpperAustria - Today was different Visiting Salzburg, I went to Mozarts home amongst others. A Cuppa in Cafe Fuerst with an original Linzer Torte ( a la grandmere - for real ).

    It was an early 0630 A.M. chilly morning and still dark when I left. Salzburg is an hour and a half away with the excellent transportation system we have.

    The old city looks like always, the river Salzach with its dark grey waters. The chill made me wrap up my Chinese Police standard issue Fur collar.
    With the hood on, I looked like an alien or the evil scythe man. I didn't care much . I felt warm in this marvelous engineered coat. A microfiber fleece inner jacket. A Teflon coated fabric of artificial silk on the outer liner. Thus you can survive the biggest cold. The price paid awas very low. Thank god for my foresight. For the price of a lunch for 1 I got this piece.

    On I went on to the Dome square, by now all in Xmas decoration. There are stalls around Mirabel square. The castle now in Winter with the garden not attractive. Salzburg is a great city. We spent quiet some time there together with our daughter and family. I see the monks mountain which I climbed up on a thousand stairs daily.

    Franzens castle is still on the upper left fringe of the monks mountain. The monastry with its friars and the old church. Coming back is what I wanted to speak about. A odyssei like trip where all went wrong, well sort of.

    I took he Railjet at 14.12 p.m., having concluded my rounds. It was an earlier train which made me reach Linz city earlier.
    What I did not realize was I took the wrong train for the onward journey. So I ended up in St. Valentin when I realized for some reason I made a mistake and the connecting train had already left.

    By now I had no option to change my itinerary completely to enable me to reach my home. Evening and weekends is where public transport becomes a problem in these parts.

    I went on to Amstetten city, took a connecting bus, changed twice, and voila.. I made it home at 19.20 p.m.

    Now what I wanted to write about was my final walk from the bus stop to the house, a mere 1500 m, but in total darkness. Going along a forested lined roads in the dark, I switched on my mobile phone light to enable me to see.

    What grabbed my full attention was the sheer beauty of the nightly sky. One can hardly find such sky anymore. I saw such sky less the chill that is in Guinea West Africa in the town of Beyla. That is many years back.

    Today I was able to see the complete star covered sky and it gave me hope. With this impression lasting till I reached back to a cozy warm home.

    - 19 NOV - FIRST SNOW IN BAD KREUZEN What a difference a week makes.
    Vienna is great, the Christmas season has officially started.
    The Mayor's Christmas tree has been placed at the town city square.
    St. Stephans Cathedral is shining in a purple blue light,
    Christmas market vendors have set up their kiosks,
    mulled wine is served at a rate of EUR 5+a cup.
    All looks like Christmas. I have different sentiments
    yet I walk through the crowds hardly noticing the glitter around.
    My friend informed me of another upcoming Korea trip, he has done well as a central figure in promoting his life sport project Taekwondo.
    He has reached the top DAN still giving private lessons.
    . Our friendship reaches back well over half a decade when I was an active member of his school.
    For now I am back for the time being looking forward to my walks in the serene forests beneath the castle of KLAM
    The castle of KLAM thrones above and has some magnet like influencce on me.
    I still have not been there as I intended but I believe the time will come.
    Today I will attempt another walk through the snow covered forest.
    What I already noticed is the fresh clean air and that is what i need.
    WiLL HAVE MORE SOON ...

- 18 NOV - MEDICINE HAS ITS PERKS A WEEK IN VIENNA

GREAT OR MORE NOT SO ... ....

- 09 NOV - A SUCCESS STORY On my last VIENNA trip on return I met a young man from AFGHANISTAN.

I was curious and asked him where he was from.
He replied he came to AUSTRIA 8 years ago in one of the notorious MIGRANT journeys via IRAN, TURKEY, BULGARIA, SERBIA, HUNGARY, finally ending up here.

This was interesting so I kept on inquiring.
His family of 6 males and 7 females had all relocated to PESHAWAR, PAKISTAN because of security concerns.

A political debate ensued whereby it was clear that he blamed the chaos in his country on the U.S.
After 20 years of occupation ot AFGHANISTAN they had left the country after having destroyed their equipment ( on which he was insisting ). Most of the left behind equipment was destroyed before the troups left in a VIETNAM like run away condition.
No good words came from his mouth concerning the greatest peace loving nation on earth.

After reaching here he got a job in an Italian PIZZA RESTAURANT. He had no previous knowledge about PIZZA making, just learned his trade on the job.

Now he shares an apartment with 2 other AFGHANS at a combined cost of 900 EUROS per month.
He showed me Fotos of their apartment and frankly speaking I was pleasantly surprised.

AFGHAN carpets cover their hall, a large TV on the wall, giving the impression of a civilized well established home run by 3 migrants.He has not seen his family in 3 years and is planning to go to AFGHANISTAN in December for a 5 wweek visit.

He was also very critical of the TALIBAN in his country
and blamed them for the many bomb detonations in Khabul and elsewhere.

According to him many people still die as a result of such explosions, with a recent toll of 300.

Women have to stay at home. The TALIBAN are illiterates themselves (but know how to shoot according to him and don't permit women to attend to schools. ( something which is well known throughout the world thanks to the huge information service of the U.S. ).

I am asking myself what have 20 years of occupation by U.S. forces brought AFGHANISTAN - excxept utter destruction of their infrastructure and loss of human life.

Another quagmire left behind by the greatest nation on earth.

A young man of 28 giving all this this account of his newly found life in AUSTRIA.

- 05 NOV - A FREEZING HALLSTADT It took some mental effort to overcome the general laxness
to push me out from the bed at 05.00 A.M. today.
When I did I took a ride down to SCHWERTBERG, on to LINZ and finally to .. HALLSTADT.
Soon enough I realized the dilemma I was in.
It was raining - literally - cats and dogs.
Temperatures dropping to 4 deg. C I reached HALLSTADT together with a few fellow Tourists.
It took 2 h from Linz via WELS, SCHWANENSTADT, GMUNDEN, BAD ISCHL, ETC.
A boat ferry took us across in thick mist, the boat was uninvitingly chilly.
It's been a while my fingers started to get stiff. The silhouettes of the well popularized township started to appear.
HALLSTADT is a scenic township that much can be said.
Age and architectural style adds to the exclusive setting
Wandering through the only main alley street you realize how much history is buried here.
After half an hour my newly found friend, a lecturer teaching MBA courses
were grabbing a hot cup of tea in one of the tiny cafehouses along the road.
The obligatory photoshoots follow and some I will post here.

Come and see me in my ORIGINAL CHINESE POLICE COAT FEATURING A FUR COLLAR, HOOD AND A HOLLOW FIBER JACKET WITH OUTER COAT.
I bought it on one of my journeys through and in CHINA years ago in NANNING on our way to VIETNAM.
It was a wise investment for a mere 30 USD.
The coat is a marvel. There are all kinds of jackets for sale, some claim to be the warmest - for a just 700 EURO price tag.
I am content with my CHINESE POLICE MODEL COAT. It serves the purpose more than expected.

- 04 NOV -( 06.10.2022 ) INTERSPAR AUSTRIA QUERY How an imbecile employees can cause a company's image to falter.
This isn't a campaign, rather a COMPLAINT AGAINST AN INTERSPAR EMPLOYEE IN SALZBURG EUROSPAR
It happened a month back on 06.10.2022 at 11.39A.M. KASSIER 254763.
I am very familiar with EUROSPAR Salzburg from previous visits.
After my lunch I went on to buy a few groceries in the EUROSPAR supermarket.
I brought along a SPAR RED LIGHT SHOPPINGBAG
which I had bought in PERG UPPER AUSTRIA INTERSPAR.
When I wanted to pack my groceries, the cashier KASSIER pointed at the bag and pointed out I had not paid for the bag. An argument ensued
whereby I claimed I had purchased the bag in another location, PERG a week ago.
The cashier in form of a very SMART woman kept on insisting about the bag and called her supervisor.
I explained that it was beyond my imagination that I could come from Upper Austria 3 hours to steal a bag of 1 EURO value
The tag was still on the bag so I challenged her to check the tag number and compare it with their stock in SALZBURG.
Something, for some reason they could not do according to the supervisor.
And according to her the tag should have been removed when purchsed.
Perhaps the cashier in PERG did not perform his duty well enough, and I did not pay attention.
The supervisor then told me ' I would not know what they came across every day in their supermarket. '.
The matter was resolved and I took my bag and left.
What I was annoyed about was the attitude of the cashier. She was impolite and in her simple primitive mind
could not have thought that a 1 EURO bag packed and folded in my black Rucksack
could not have come from the counter in front of her..
That was what annoyed me.
I voiced out my frustration loud enough for all customers standing to notice.
An employee of that sort can tarnish the name of a otherwise good brand.
I made that clear to the lady cashier KASSIER Nr. 254763.

CAMP MAUTHAUSEN UPPER AUSTRIA

MAUTHAUSEN



  • MAUTHAUSEN


    THE GREY SINISTER LOOKING BUILDINGS APPEAR IN THE HORIZON, AS I HIKE UP THE TRAILTO THE ONCE INFAMOUS PLACE OF HORROR.
    A CLIMB OF ABOUT 20 MINUTES TILL I CAN CLEARLY MAKE OUT THE DARK GREY GRANITE WALLS, CUT FROM THE QUARRY BELOW THE NOTORIOUS CAMP.
    ONE CAN SENSE THE TRAGEDIES THAT WENT ON HERE EIGHT DECADES AGO. TO COME SOON : A TRAGEDY OF UNIMAGINABLE DIMENSION IN PICTURES ..

    THE MAUTHAUSEN CAMP PUTS EVERYTHING ELSE IN THE SHADOW

    September 9th, 2022 MAUTHAUSEN UPPER AUSTRIA

    • MAUTHAUSEN


      THE FIRST THING ONE NOTICES ARE THE LARGE WATCHTOWERS OVERLOOKING THE WHOLE AREA.
      THERE IS MORE TO COME. ONCE YOU ENTER THROUGH THE HUGE GATE, WHICH IS STILL INTACT (WITH THE NOTORIOUS METAL LETTERS ARBEIT MACHT FREI NOW REMOVED).
      THE LARGE TRANSPORT YARD WITH GARAGES FOR TRUCKS ARE VISIBLE, THERE MUST BE THIRTY OR MORE OF THEM. IT DOES NOT TAKE MUCH IMAGINATION TO FIGURE WHAT THE TRUCKS WERE USED FOR, INCLUDING THOSE WHO WERE CONVERTED WITH EXHAUST PIPES LEADING TO THE INTERIOR.
