Lillö lika varmt med moln som när det är soligt!-Lillo as hot with clouds as when it’s sunny!
At last we have had rain in Kristianstad after several weeks of drying and temperatures of around 30°C. It already started at 5 o’clock in the morning and continued throughout the day, except for an hour’s halt. When the watch was four in the afternoon and I was cycling home from work, it was pouring with rain! I was obviously soaking wet, but what did it, the rain is really needed. Here is a picture of beautiful Lillo without rain, the camera does not like water.

Bäcken som rinner från Hammarsjön-The creek that flows from Hammer lake.
Sunshine all the time makes a desert. (Arabic proverb)
Since mid of April a real wave of heat has struck wide parts of Europe leading to a real drought. It is obvious that the climate change is something real happening just now and here, and landscapes may change then very quickly their general appearance without water and rain.
A meadow then turns out to be a steppe within some weeks, and the rapidness of such a development is quite astonishing.The legacies of the last Ice Age are still to be found everywhere in form of erratics, lakes or glacial valleys, but now other objects come into the common focus insistingly.
The photos here reflect some sandy descriptive impressions in this regard picked up during the last hot weeks revealing a dominant brown colour.
TOO BIG TO FAIL WHEN PLAYING HERE AND NOW HEAVY ROCK-BALL IN THE WIDE INFINITE SAVANNA? THEN AT TWILIGHT IT IS THE RIGHT TIME TO START SIMPLY ANOTHER SURVEY ON SUCH PLAYING GROUNDS AS A GAMECHANGER BETWEEN MAGICAL SHADOWS. WHEN BOOSTING TO THE END POINT OF THIS WINDY CONFUSED ROUTE AT THE GRASSLANDS’ HORIZON, TO BEGIN THE ETERNAL PLAY ANOTHER TIME AGAIN AND AGAIN …………….

The USA under the actual embarrassing regime of a complete ballooned and blonde fake-personality however still have the intention to build a high and “nice” wall on its Southern borderline to Mexico. Hence, I have simply forgotten why this president is greedy for such fence, but this does not really matter because things like that do not constitute any future while the waves of history will just wash it away sooner or later like before the Roman Limes or the municipal Wall of Berlin – what a senseless waste of time, money and energy.

In this respect US American policies – personified by their reactionary, megalomaniac and egodriven leader Donald Trump – reveal again a complete dissociative amnesia regarding past times and history. Now, therefore let’s only remember to the former US president Ronald Reagan and his prominent claim towards the Soviet-Union in West-Berlin, 12 June 1987: “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!” When being said, this request sounded quite utopian but only around 2 years later this should become very true.
And now 30 years later, the same USA with another president wants to build a protective wall to Mexico in order to safeguard the bloody white American dream of freedom?! So without doubt the shooting slogan “America first” has become already a reality, but such a national-chauvinist strategy and thinking of the 19th century (getting critical also elsewhere in Russia, Turkey, Poland or Hungary) will not resolve any of the global challenging questions of today.

Additional remark of 15 July 2018:
FRANCE IN TRANCE!
The European Union’s fate could be decided by how it deals with the question of refugees and migration. In Germany, national-chauvinist politicians are pushing to close again the borders such destroying the Schengen Zone being a real progress on this continent. At the frontier from Germany to Poland you may observe actually only the usual sporadic controls by German or Polish customs officers. But at the border to Austria there are already federal police controls which shall be widened.
The German Interior Minister Seehofer is one of the many radical-nationalist ghosthunters in this regard who had already promised to resign what he has not done so far. Instead of following up his other important tasks, such as taking care of urgently required new houses and affordable appartments, since many weeks he only promotes extremist steps against migration although only very few refugees do come to Europe at the moment. And on the recent EU summit nobody has discussed about the question why the people are forced to flee to Europe and what could be done so that they can stay and live furthermore in their homeland under acceptable conditions. This nationalist discourse sees the migrants not as human beings which simply need our help.
More than 100,000 people have already signed a petition asking the German Interior Minister to step back as promised. If you want to joint it, you can do so under the following link:

“In 1519 Hernan Cortez, the great Spanish conquistador stormed and took the city of Mexico-Tenochtitlan. He did not then, and he never knew, that it was built upon the ruins of the Mayan civilization. Five years later he travelled across what is now the little republic of Honduras, hacking his way foot by foot through an almost impenetrable forest given over to reptiles and insects and the odours of putrefaction. Had he turned aside from the path he was cutting, by only a fraction, he would have come to a little stream where he would have found in the midst of all this luxuriant foliage the ruins of what had once been a great city. It was the city of Copan, the chief light amongst others such as Tikal or Palenque of the Mayan civilization which existed between A.D. 176 and A.D. 620. They are still, far from all other human habitations, lost in the powerful tropical forest which like some sylvan boa-constrictor, has literally swallowed them up and is now devouring them at its leisure, prising the finehewn, close-laid stones apart with its writhing roots and tendrils.”
