Apart / Beyond

Current PABUCA topic…

Here’s the Pfänderturm/Hungerturm (distrain/hunger tower), the last one of the former 17 towers of the town wall – a wall to keep the people on the outside apart from those on the inside:

Between two houses there’s not much space for a separation, and even that isn’t complete:

A passage connecting the main square with the parallel street through the separating houses, usually quite dirty in the northern part – with a bar/club/restaurant in between, left of the bright area with the landscapes:

“Center” is the current topic at Pabuca – and at the center of Pfaffenhofen is, of course, the main square with the town hall on the east side and the “Haus der Begegnung” (encounter, meeting) next to the major church on the west side, between which we’re looking here:

Rathaus zwischen Kirche und HdB

Let’s step closer to the town hall:

In the past weeks, however, there was something different in the center of everyone’s attention:

(…and I’m not referring to the Ilm here…)

Way up in the air

…aren’t just the emotions after the World Cup victory, but it’s also this week’s topic at Pabuca.

Let’s start with maypole and modern lamps at the main square:

Remains of old external goods hoists are visible in several places, though mostly just by doors in the walls:

One from the archive, because it would be hard to order a hot-air balloon, get back into my former apartment, and let the balloon fly just such that it’s visible between typical gables and the biomass heating plant’s chimney:

GER! ★★★★ Nicht ARGh!

…zumindest am Ende nicht – unterwegs meinten die Nerven was anderes… aber egal:

New topic at Pabuca is “Vastness”…

A vast amount of water flooded the vast main square and the surrounding city – luckily only on this small bronze model:

A vast amount of sleepers connects a vast length of rails that can take you to the vast world. Though not with these ICE-T or ICE-3 or the other types, because these only pass through (except in case of some breakdowns):

The support structure for the new roof of our ice rink has to span quite some distance, too:
