Leven in Hamburg

Leven in Hamburg

Leven in Hamburg was een feest en we zullen het missen. Ons huis, de rozentuin, het overdekte balkon waar we zo vaak hebben gezeten. We woonden in het pittoreske Treppenviertel met zijn vele kleine huizen dicht aan dicht gebouwd tegen de "Elbhang". Elke zaterdag liepen we met onze "hackenporsche" de vele trappen omhoog naar het dorp om boodschappen te doen op de markt. Als beloning volgde voor...

"Pooh, great to be away from the house, always busy, always things to do. It is too hot to move anyway. Summer in the city! Great that we have the river. Ah, look at that nice boot. Come on Little bird, relax, enjoy!" "Funny Bird, you can't just leave our friend there. This is not funny. He will melt. You have to help me dig him out again! Where is Duvel when we need him?

Duvel and the 3irds celebrate the one-day-winter

Duvel und die 3 Vögel essen Leberwurstkekse beim Friseur

"Duvel, bist du krank?" "Nein, aber lass mich bloss in Ruhe! Meine Trimm-Frau pflückt schon seit einer Stunde an mir rum. Manchmal versuche ich sie mit Schmusen von der Arbeit abzuhalten, aber das klappt auch nicht immer. Jetzt ist sie kurz weg und ich versuche ein bisschen zu schlafen. Ist ja toll, diesen alten Mantel auszuziehen, aber irgendwann habe ich keinen Bock mehr. Meinen Bart will sie...

Ein Adventsmarkt für die Elefanten

Ein Adventsmarkt für die Elefanten

Früher wurde die afrikanische Savanne bevölkert von hunderttausenden Elefanten. Heutzutage werden sie vom Aussterben bedroht. Warum? Weil sie gejagt werden im Auftrag von Händlern, die großes Geld damit verdienen. In Asien sind die Stoßzähne der Elefanten Gold wert. Sie werden verarbeitet zu Statuen oder Medikamenten deren Wirksamkeit nur im Aberglaube der Menschen existiert. Alle 15 Minuten...

Duvel and the 3irds dance with the leaves

"Duvel, these leaves are like golden snow, not as cold though. Swirly and floaty, nice and fluffy. Fallen leaves, fallen leaves, fallen leaves on the ground. Jupeeee, I am dancing with the leaves! "Silly bird. Yes, let's run. Maybe I can hunt some squirrels, a there goes a fuzzy tail. Quick, before the boss catches me. She feels sorry for the little tree rats. Bugger, that squirrel is much too...

Duvel and the 3irds keep on digging

"Duvel, stop this stupid digging of yours! It is too hot to dig. I am trying to enjoy my shade and you keep on ploughing sand into my face. Why don’t you go swimming?" "Funny Bird, I will not go swimming, I never swim. You are so selfish. Look at you, you are alone under that parasol. Poor little bird is nearly melting in the sun. And where is big bird? Oops, I must have buried him." "No problem...
