Bietzen Spa: “According to the Deutscher Bäderverband e.V. (German Spa Association), the spring is of a sodium calcium chloride water, which contains significant amounts of magnesium, hydrogen carbonate and sulphate.” Apparently, it is supposed to be good for you.
Phone cam recursion
Since 2010-12-20 I have retired my Sony Ericsson Satio and have been using an HTC Desire HD in its stead. The Desire is about 6 million times better as a smart phone, but probably has an inferior camera. I foresaw this when I started my blog and that was why I added rule number two (see text box to the right). So I will resist the temptation to keep taking photos with the Satio, and I will learn to live with the quirks of the Desire in order stick to the goal of this blog: trying to capture the essence of the places around me with the camera I always have with me.
P.S. Upon Ccat's request, here is a large version of the photo you see dimly on the Desire.
