Liguria: A Day At The Mediterranean in Arma di Taggia

We needed to go shopping and see a vet and so we went to the next bigger town which was Arma di Taggia. I wanted to dip my toe into the sea and was sure that Pavlov would have some fun too. A lot of English and Dutch people hang around in the sun next to the sea and some of them even swam.
When we took a walk through the old town center we came to the Piazza in front of the big church and a lot of elder Ladies sat there chatting. I asked if this would be the “la Piazza delle Donne” (the women’s space) and got “le Donne ANCIANI!” for an answer (the ELDER women space). Happy that some traditions stay forever.

Burn The Virus II

From all the countries and landscapes they came. Druids, magicians, inventors, artists, scientists and clairvoyants. They came with their burden in form of a virus and they came to take its power away. To ban it from the surface of Mother Earth. Like last year, only better.


After the burning of the viruses, a portal in heaven opened and a red rainbow appeared. Unfortunately we – the humans – are not yet ready to to read the signs.

And than darkness and rain came and the ceremony began …

Burn the Virus

On a nice beginning of summer weekend, we met on the countryside to finally eradicate the corona virus from earth. Once and for all. At least in our dreams :-).

Everything started smoothly with a sunny walk through the fields.

But how to burn a virus? We first must have it. And as our intent was highly symbolic, we had to create symbols that could be burnt.

The evening came and our master of ceremonies came in form of ancient Indian wisdom to bring light to those dark times.

Our job is done. May the virus Rest In Peace.
