National Day

1st August is the National Day here. My husband and I have been to Germany for a day trip. We went to a park with over 200 monkeys inside. I fed them the very first time in my life. They're so funny and cute. Some of them just sit around all day and wait for people feeding them popcorn.

We saw many beautiful white storks around the park. White storks are gregarious birds and their wingspan is 195 cm – 215 cm. They breed in open farmland areas with access to marshy wetlands, building a large stick nest in trees, on buildings, or on purpose-built man-made platforms. Each nest is 1–2 m in depth, 0.8–1.5 m in diameter, and 60–250 kg in weight which can be very heavy. They often nest close to human habitation. The nest is typically used year after year. 

Then we went to a Museum at Lake Constance. It shows the farmers, fishermen and the brass founders of the Stone Age 6000 years ago, and be a witness to the lifestyle of the Bronze Age 3000 years ago. It's so interesting. The landscape of the surrounding is gorgeous!
