No demo without an after play. My mom forced me to go to the Landesgartenschau today, for bringing her to the “Freiheit statt Angst” demo yesterday. The LaGa09 is a big exhibition of garden art and flowers. You get that this content is very exclusive and only interesting, if you’re my mom, if you’re old or if you have a big passion for plants, flowers and other shrubbery.
So I went up today, checking the weather, evil giggling that its raining, preparing for a silly dance for mom and then she said “Good morning, hurry Kindi (thats what she calls me), we’re going to Oranienburg.” Gnah.
A few half hours later, I found myself at the station Lichtenberg, waiting for the train to leave. Just a 20 minutes ride, then a 15 minutes walk to the exhibition area. I was watching some nutrias under a bridge and some swan ducks on a pier nearby. Animals always distract me and that makes mom angry.
So hurry off to the castle Oranienburg. The castles garden is where the show takes place. Mom payed 10 Euro for us and then we entered flower paradise. I was happy that I brought the camera, so I wasted my time with documenting the whole trip and making a lot flower pictures. Flowers are thankful. They do not run away, do not change their color, don’t make any weird faces.
We saw most of the exhibition, when it started raining very hard. Thank god, for mom, there was an ikebana show in one of the halls, where it terribly smelled like wet retiree. When the rain stopped, I pulled my mom to the catering for a lunch snack. Still raining, when finished, we went to see the special spice exhibition with lots of not smelling spice examples in another hall. How boring. Then we saw the rest of the area in the rain and headed off to the castle that had a neat little exhibition about the former kings and queens (I just read a book about it) and a special exhibition about Taiwan (did not know before) that I enjoyed very much. Saw pictures of the natural park where we desperately got lost back then in march this year. Weird to see that in a totally different context.
We took the next shuttle bus, then the train and went home, shaking from the wet cold that went through our clothes.
