  • Impressions from Bangalore

    After a short visit to the Parliament building Vidhana Soudha and the adjacent park, we went to KR Market, an impressive combination of markets for fruits & vegetables, flowers, spices and tools (!), all under one roof. The neighbourhood did not disappoint either with its downtown cows near cramped temples. And – of course – […]

  • Bannerghatta National Park (Zoo)

    Only 15 km from Electronic City, a huge National Park with accompanying zoo sits within a hilly forest. The Northern part of the Park is open to “Safari”, which actually means driving through rather large enclosures for each species. Then there is a large butterfly conservatory, housed within an architecturally pleasing glass dome. Most impressions […]

  • Bangalore walk beyond Electronic City

    Just some metres beyond the industrial zones, large residential areas bloom. Old neighbourhoods witness how skyscrapers pop up in their vicinity. And again, (sleeping) dogs everywhere.

  • Bangalore Electronic City Phase I by Night

    Some impressions from Wipro Avenue (west part) before, during and after sunset. (Sleeping) dogs are a common sight. So is pollution from dusty roads and exhaust pipes.

  • CERN impressions

    A spontaneous visit to CERN was surprisingly rewarding. I managed to sneak into the fully booked French guided tour. For the next two hours, we visited two spots: first was the historical synchro-cyclotron, which surprised with a well-produced animation of its inner workings, projected directly onto its skeleton. Then we went to the building above […]

  • Details of Geneva

    Apart from the historical centre (and CERN, of course), Geneva has many nice spots. Here is a sample of two days aimlessly strolling around.

  • Details of London

    Some details I noticed along the way.

  • Schaustelle Pinakothek der Moderne

    Schaustelle Pinakothek der Moderne

    From April to October 2013, Pinakothek der Moderne had to close for renovation. During that time, a temporary exhibition space called Schaustelle was erected. Here is my take on the construction:
