Exciting Saturday ?

Tomorrow morning I'll have to get up early, even though it's a Saturday. I have to go to downtown Frankfurt to watch over an event my office gave permission to. Some of you know my job, or at least a bit. This thing tomorrow involves a huge, double rotar helicopter of Russian make, a Kamakov (?) which will be pulling up some heavy air conditioners to the roof of one of Frankfurt's skyscrapers! Now, I've been at a number of such jobs (including last Sunday) and usually they are very well organised. It's a job "perk" in some ways, but it is also quite a responsibility and often makes me nervous. Yes, I'll probably take some pictures...

The building they will be working near is a futuristic shopping mall. These pictures I took of the inside ...



and for those of you who haven't seen my Frankfurt pictures before, here's one showing the contrast old and new...


I hope you guys all have a much more relaxing weekend...

  1. Maybe a Kamov? I know you'll watch 'em like a hawk and get them through it safely, Dorrie. Have a great day...I'll be waiting for your pictures. :)
