I've been absent a bit and I understand we're not on Fuerteventura any longer. Your keywords say "Via Claudia Augusta" and I know that that is the road connecting what is now called southern Germany with Italy. Roman remains are always fascinating.

High time it is I got on with old vacation pics from spring! Peiting is rather close to Schwabniederhofen where we currently spend so much time, the old farmers house of my husband's family. Fortunately it is a good deal newer than the Villa Rustica and just a tad in a better state -- LOL

Haha, yes, I would hope that your lodgings are in better shape than the Villa Rustica!!

I said just a tad.... :D
In fact, when we ripped open the old 3-chamber waste water cleaning system from the last years before the canalisation to finally fill it up with earth it had an unsettling semblance to the roman bath ruins of the area. We also found many weird "spolia" from the times before the first car garage that stood sans foundations partially on the old "Grua"(thats regional slang for a working farms manure collection pit) -- like mystery pipesleading from somwhere to whereever, not occurring in any plans. :)
Meanwhile the new firm concrete foundations are in, surrounded by a modern and photographic well documented system or rainwater and wastewater pipes to last hopefully a few generations-- but the spoiled tenant who pined for a new double garage by now only whimpers about dirt and inconvenience and no building yet instead of admiring the new artwork in the ground, or the bruises, blisters and sweat of the landlords. :(

LOL. Well, that's old buildings for you: lots of surprises not on maps and never ending work!
I do hope the manure pit was empty at least? :) :)

We had to built the 3 chamber waste water system when I was not married yet but lived already with Karl. So I knew the pit as it was originally. I remember a neighbor who still had a working farm pumping his manure tank full several times, bringing riverwater in and then pumbing it back to the tank for putting the rest on his fields and finally Karl going down through the gully opening, testing the air with a candle before shoveling out the rest, making the walls inside while I sent him the bricks and stuff down in a bucket on a chain. Ewww, it sure did stink....... but that was in 1986 :)

Ja, fuer ein Guetchen jenseits der Alpen zur Versogung einer Pferdewechselstation war die Peitinger Villa schon ganz was ganz feines. Da muss eine adlige Herrschaft ein superschickes Landhaus gehabt haben, nicht nur fuer einen Verwalter mit ein paar Landarbeitssklaven, sondern auch zur Sommerfrische von hochgestellten Herren und Damen geeignet. Aber wer weiss wie viele solche aufwaendigen Haeuser es um 100-350 im Lechrain gab? Es wunde so viel zerstoert, erst von den aergerlichen Vindelikern die einfach alles roemische dem Erdboden gleich machen wollten, spaeter alte Rittersleut' die strategische Punkte gerne aufwaendig wiederbesiedelten und dabei nur die Strassen, Wehrtumfundamente und einzelne Steine fuer brauchbar hielten, auch die Pfarrherren und Bischoefe die sagenumwobene "Heidenkloesterle" unbedingt christianisieren und zur Kapelle umbauen mussten, dann die leider recht tollpatschigen Hobbyarcheologen des Klassizissmus und schliesslich die Bombentrichter vom zweiten Weltkrieg.... :(

Roemer hatten eigentlich eine unglaubliche menge Disziplin verglichen mit den Horden der naechsten nachrueckenden Zivilisationen, nur ein sehr zentralisietes System mit einem riesigen Verwaltungswasserkopf. "Dekadenz" wird immer so Ueberbewertet wenn es darum geht was eine Kultur kaputt gemacht hat. Die ist nur eine Mischung aus echtem Lifestyle Fortschritt, der sich etwas zu langsam nach unten Verbreitet und den neuesten billigen Ablenkungstrends fuer die unteren Klassen. Und die gibt es eigentlich in jeder Kultur und das bleibt wohl auch so.

Very nicely presented and protected from the weather. A fine shot, Sonja, and we know all about not leaving anything in the car at Stanley Park.

I was told just how wonderful safe Vancouver is as opposed to the USA cities a tad to often I guess, and we lived in that Windstar during travel with everything we needed day and night stored inside, plus I must admit I was at times a bit sloppy with fully concealing a certain smal bumbag looking its high age and sporting a half broken zipper after use. Anyway some idiot smashed the side window of the van for it and took my entire stash of -- um -- special ladies equipment for the restroom :(((. They will have had fun with this great catch, not much value for them but leaving us a world class mess with a drafty shelter, glass pieces all over and no clue where the nearest car repair and the next drugstore would be. This was one month before we left your continent and our first trouble with any thives in the new millenium. So you can safely bet I will remember that park not for it's nice looks and Vancouver not for it's special safety and friendlyness. :(
