Something special in Bonn? Thoughts about Bochum? Some words:
Bonn serves its inhabitants with three recreational areas: The “Rheinauen”, the forrest “Kottenforst” and the Rhine with its promenades at himself. On good weather days this places are busy. Jogger, events, biker, picknick, barbecueing, gastronomy. The nature is covered by a coloured swarming.
But when rain comes up and the masses escape and finally the rain has wiped away the last jogger, the true nature appears, quiet, directly nearby the city… In Bonn it rains on a third of days over the year. Rain devides the soul of these areas.
…hhmm… …hard to say what should be special on Bochums rain. Is it more wet? Does it make people faster escape from it? But why should rain be different. Maybe rain is connecting and causes familiar feelings that we all know. It’s more connecting to walk together through the rain with a friend, then it is to do it alone. And we all know the feeling of calmness in the air, when the rain is over.
