Easter Monday in Bielefeld, Germany, was sunny and warm. Why Bielefeld? My daughter and her family with three kids live there. It is a little bit too far to see each other really often this is why Easter was good reason to go there. It was not the first visit of that city. There are many familiar things there but every single visit still a lot of hidden places and undiscovered objects. The most popular and loved place is Old Town in the center. All of it is a huge pedestrian area. Tourists and local people just walking around, smiling, laughing, talking, siting in cafe and restaurants with friends and families, and celebrate the Life. Watch that difficult to imaging why somewhere in the world so many unhappy people and trouble, sorrow and grief. Life is too short to make it miserable. Spring is in full power in Bielefeld. There are a lot of flowers; all the trees and bushes are dressed with young and tender leaves. Breeze stirs the air. Sun is playing on the shivering leaves and sending its rays in the eyes. People squint but do not hide from the sun. They enjoy warm and gentle spring light. Peace and Love reign in the city.
Why do I like that day? That is one of really few days in the year when all the stores are closed and city is looking amazing. There is no rush, no shopping, no cars and people on the streets. No, no, no, there are people on the streets but that is not a weekday people that is different kind of people. They are carefree, quiet, relaxed, and smiling.
This past Good Friday the weather was good – sunny, warm, and springlike. Evening was wonderful and good for walking, thinking and enjoying the life. Somebody suffered for us long time ago and we have to be grateful for that sacrifice.
