Construction Area 2

We have a number of construction areas in the city at the moment. There are two shopping centers being built, for example.

This photo is taken at one of the sites where they take down a former department store. Everyone walking by wiped their eyes after looking up (including me) since there was still a lot of dust in the air, although they tried to keep it down with water. It was quite a sight though...

Blowing up the photo, I can also see some wee buds on the tree! Here too.

I know you've had a hard winter in the Rheingau, even though it has a slightly warmer microclimate than nearby Frankfurt - or so I've read.

The mood of the city is intensified by the gentleman at the right who is what my Austrian friend W. would describe as a "Marmeladekopf" German (stocky, pink and blond) and the young woman in a hijab (I think) along with a variety of othe people.

dutchie & bob - thanks, I guess I was there at the right time. An hour later and the building would've been gone.

nuno - smile!

sam & marieta - yes, it was quite dusty, so I took this photo and went on...

grant - Smile! Yeah! Everyone made sure to get away actually ;).

carlos - hm, good idea, maybe I could try to sell this photo ;).

wolf - you're right, it's part of progress. I'm just curios if it's going to be for the good... I'll hopefully be able to show you in a few weeks...

wisconsin pics - thank you! Yes, that's also part of the city mood at the moment.

lagatta - yes, slowly it's getting warmer and you can see signs of spring everywhere - hurray! Smile! Yes, we've got an international crowd here.

santy - that's what I hope too. I'm not sure why we would need two of them but I guess, they've made their calculations...
