Blurb:
"Bremen mal mit anderen Augen sehen?
Valeska Scholz hat das wörtlich genommen und sich, ausgerüstet mit Schere und Papier, auf die Suche nach den unentdeckten Augenblicken der Hansestadt gemacht. Von mürrisch bis makaber, fröhlich bis frech und gutmütig bis großkotzig haben die etwas anderen Bewohner Bremens für sie posiert. Ein ungewöhnliches und überraschendes Buch - Nachmachen ausdrücklich erwünscht."

Translation:
"See Bremen with different eyes?
Valeska Scholz has taken this literally and has been looking, equipped with scissors and paper, for undetected moments in the Hanseatic city. From grumpy to macabre, from happy to brash, from cocky to good-natured the somewhat different inhabitants of Bremen have been posing for her. An unusual and surprising book - imitation is very welcome."

It made me so happy to find this in my post box when I checked it today! I didn't realize I was first on the list, so it was a great surprise! I love this kind of arty book; and I will be looking for places around Kathmandu to photograph with the eyes!

Thank you also for the card and labels, ApoloniaX - I appreciate it!

CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:

Posted this out to Prachi in India earlier today. I firstly want to apologize for not passing this on sooner; a lot is happening in my personal life that took my time and also my concentration, and things got missed.
I want to add how much I loved this book. I thought it would be eyes on things like monuments or in famous places, but I loved that it was mostly ordinary things. It made me smile and laugh and look at things around me a little differently. I kept a pair of eyes because I still want to upload a photo of my own, though it might take me a little while. Thank you for sharing, ApoloniaX! It's a lovely, cheerful book!

What a great book! My family and I enjoyed looking through it together.

We'd just celebrated Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada. At our house, that meant getting together with lots of family members and enjoying all the tasty produce from the fall harvest. I took a photo to celebrate that occasion!

For the past couple of days I've thought "now where would I stick that pair of eyes..." while walking about. And now the challenge has landed, yikes! I might just grab a pair of eyes to town tonight...

The JE picture is not my doings, but wanted to show it since it's quite fitting! It's of the (imho) ugliest statue in the city, called Europe. It shows Zeus as a bull, abducting princess Europe. I walk past it almost every day and have released a few books on it even. One day someone had put sticker eyes on it, and I thought they were rather well-fitting! See the statue in all its glory, sans the eyes http://www.wam.fi/public/default.aspx?contentid=525342&nodeid=13067

(This journal photo is one I took AFTER I passed on the book - I wish I'd had some eyes with me that day, but the light fixtures on the wall sort of look like eyes... Larger photo here.)

Oh, and just do a new journal entry and the book will be back on your shelf. :)
