klangwolke :: 750 Jahre

our little city is 750 years old, we got the right to be called a city in the year 1264. of course this is to be celebrated. we celebrate throughout the whole year. this past sunday was one highlight, the reinactement. the austrian embassador was handing over a replica of the certificate and seal. speaches were given and music was played, horses paraded by, well a wonderful sunny afternoon celebrating history is a good thing and even enjoyable.
the "musik wolke" though interesting and with a high level of artistic and technical detail was excellent. though i realized myself, i'm not trained to "just listen". it really has been a good "show", though it was hard to keep focus as we humans are so trained to be visually stimulated.

i'm glad i went and enjoyed the spectacle and that the kids took part in it too.
and yes there even was a bag piper, not really traditional or usual for switzerland. maybe i still underestimate the close relationship to our european neighboors on the island...

One of my most favorite things about being a part of the blogging world is that I get to see how people in other parts of the world spend their days. It's wonderful to see your traditions!! Looks like lots of fun!! Have a beautiful day!! : )
