Contrariness

Today I went for a long walk down to the lake, where I know that eastern rosellas like to hang out. An hour and a half later, I was forced to admit defeat and returned to my office empty-cameraed.

Only to find this sitting in a tree right outside my building.


(Apologies for the blurriness and general inability to convey the essence of parrot. I really do need a better camera.)

I found your blog via the NaBLoPoMo randomizer and am LOVING the parroty fixation and your hardass attitude to cars! I wondered how Germany was for you - I am one half of a pair of transplanted South Africans living in Germany. It was once weird, but it's now becoming scarily normal.

Thanks, Charlotte!

I never found Germany entirely 'normal' :) Even after a few years, Germans would suddenly do something that would throw me and I'd remember I was in this alien country.

Mostly I liked it there, though.
