How do you get the benefits of sea air in land locked middle to southern Germany - you build a massive Saline - a graduation tower.
Not for actually getting the salt from the water (there is a well with salty water underground) but for outdoor inhalation. The structure is 330m long and about 15m high. The inside is stacked with brushwood and the salty water is running down those stacks - with the wind this gives a sea like saly air.
Problem is that in high winds or very low temperatures they need to stop the water - but what do you get when you have masses of dried brushwood - an enormous fire hazard - last time it burnt down was in 2007 and it reopoend in 2011.
Germany? Before the beginning there was Ginnungagap, an empty space of nothingness, filled with pure creative power. (Sort of like the inside of my head.)And it ends with Ragnarok, the twilight of the Gods. In between is much fighting, betrayal and romance. Just as a good Godly story should be.Heroes have their own graveyard called Valhalla. Unfortunately we cannot show you a panorama of it at this time, nor of the lovely Valkyries who are its escort service.Hail Odin, wandering God wielding wisdom and wand! Hail Freya, hail Tyr, hail Thor!Odin made the many lakes and the fish in them. In his traverses across the lands he caused there to be the Mulheim Bridge in Cologne, as did he make the Mercury fountain, Mercury being of his nature.But it is to the mighty Thor that the Hammering Man gives service.Between the time of the Nordic old ones and that of modern Frankfort there may have been a T.Rex or two on the scene. At least some mastodons for sure came through for lunch, then fell into tar pits to become fossils for us to find.And there we must leave you, O my most pure and holy children.Text by Steve Smith.
