Yes, the time of the year is back where you can go swimming open air again! I went to the Bachgraben for the first time this year, taking out a season ticket. And 'lo and behold, I was not the only one having that bold idea - the place was packed. What's more, despite of the warm weather the water is still a tad bit too cool to do some serious swimming, so I'll have to go to a heated open air pool to do my program. Call me wimpy, but I only did 10 laps.
During the drying, I resumed reading somebody else's blog where I left off in the fall last year. The period I caught up with was what appears to have been a relatively poor summer in London (even for London!), namely July 1660. Admittedly, Samuel Pepys his blog was more of a pen & parchment affair rather than being written on a silicon based powerbook, but - well - the times, they are a'changing. Cheerioh!
