Spring is sprung II


I forgot one of the most important signs: the fountains have been turned on! Winter is over (I suppose it will snow, now that I have said that...).

I still don't quite understand the whole 'donald duck with a backpack' thing. I'll definitely have to visit Brussels to make sure you're not making the whole thing up with photoshop or something :)

I'm a photoshop virgin, stu, so would not be capable of making up such things - plus if I was I would have chosen a better background than the building site currently featured across the road! I hope I'm not making Brussels look much more interesting than it really is, but if you do visit sometime you will have to let me know. Not that I can explain anything much, nothing in any of the diatribes I have read about this particular sculpture/fountain explains why the sculptor opted for this subject.
I have no idea where he is walking off to, boo, if it isn't the coffee shop of the nearby Hilton Hotel - but he does indeed seem to be enjoying spring, miki, on his little island in the middle of the traffic!

Lovely pictures, and I guess it didn't snowed. Have you experienced the Delhi summer ever? It is just round the corner.

Hasn't snowed yet, Mridula, but don't speak too soon.. No I haven't experienced a Delhi summer (I lived in Tamil Nadu) but can imagine what it is like, I'm sure the idea of snow would seem quite delicious. Yesterday I checked the weather forecast for Tripoli where I am off to on Saturday, expecting temperatures around the mid 20s. But on 3 days this week, the forecast maximum is 34°C, not far off current levels in Delhi. I think I am going to melt!
