上海 Steamed Duck

Friends braught home this picture form Shanghai, China. They also saw a giant Duck in a pond, though I don’t know if it is the one mentionend in this CCTV news. The Duck did not last for long, it is a fluffy, tasty backery, kind of like a “Dampfnudel“. There are numerous videos on the web on how to bake shaped yeast dumplings.

From August 1946 to January 1947 27 german citizens were charged in Shanghai with committing  war crimes in WW II in the Shanghai war crime cases and 21 where sentenced and braught to US War Criminal Prison No. 1, prison Landsberg. After retrials in the US supreme Courts all sentences where repudiated and the last convicted persons released in Landsberg 1950.

Australia 1993/94 world trip

1993 and 1994 Luck Duck Sheila went on a trip round the world. She came through the following countries:

Taiwan, Hong Kong where Sheila used the Ferry from Kowloon to Hong Kong Island several times (here is a song to listen to), China, Macao, Australia, New Zealand, Fidji, USA. Unfortunately her photagrapher didn’t appreciate her enough at that time so she only got one picture in Australia. But she was treated nice: she had a nice Cristmas celebration on Fidji Island, New Years Eve in Los Angeles, a balloon trip in Australia, helped learning diving on the Flying Dutchman at the Great Barrier Reef close to the Whitsunday Island, Australia, was amazed about the thriving, booming China and Macao, and enjoyed the corals and beaches on Fidji Island. And yes, she crawled up on Ayers Rock at the end of one of the rare days when they had some rain there. Therefore and because it was late, there was nobody up there exept her and me. We returned save and sound just before darkness after a wonderful sunset.

The ducks outside the Beijing National Stadium (known as the Bird’s nest). It felt very homely for them 🙂

Andrine and Andrik visited the Great Wall at Simatai, a couple of hours north of Beijing. This is the last photo taken of Andrik – he fell off the wall just seconds after the photo was taken. R.I.P.
