sometimes you come around at funny scenes that you cannot pass without resting a few minutes and thinking about its details.

i've absolutely no idea what the builders might have thought when they installed the light switch 30cm next to the usual, optimal position where the cable appears from the wall. i've no clue why three arrows direct your view to the yellow tape that is affixed in the middle of the slightly blue door. and i've no frigging idea what the yellow tape actually implies.

questions upon questions, and no answers. probably i should have opened the door and figured it all out.

during the current course we are accommodated in brilliant located grounds that are really ancient though. the interior was already modernised years ago but some rooms and especially the floors are still in the shape of 1930 or maybe even earlier. however i find that quite charming, the old architecture and the timeless mountains are a very good match.

my daily pic shows the abandoned exit corridor of the auditorium. right from the first moment i saw this part of the building, i've fallen in love for the great skylights that illuminate the floor in a fascinating way.

till thursday evening i'm on business trip again, but this time really for a nice purpose: within the scope of the preservation of my certifications as an instructor for general sports i have to participate in at least one course every two years. that's why this week i'm going to improve my skills in climbing and mountain biking, wherefore i'm currently located close to the austrian border in the karwendel mountains next to the town mittenwald.

i know, i already told you, but let me point that out again: i like the mountains very much! if furthermore moody weather conditions attend to hills, rocks and mountains, i'm completely satisfied. in my opinion mountains and mist go very well together.

in today's pic you can see the western karwendel summit, that i can view almost completely without leaving my accommodation.
