Frankfurt Mainhattan

Frankfurt with the river “Main” is a German city with a nice skyline and some bridges, so they like to call themselves Mainhattan.

I’m going to lay down my burden, down by the riverside:

A ship named ISTANBUL in Frankfurt: it made me smile; currently you come to prison, if you are simply standing there in Istanbul. Good idea to escape from there via Danube, up to the river Main in Frankfurt and have some party there – in freedom.

Working with money in Frankfurt allows to build some skyscrapers to sharpen the corporate identity.

The skyscrapers of the financial district are the modern church towers of the money religion.

  1. Nice to see some of Frankfurt!


  2. Ditto. And how about Down by the Riverside? Pete Seeger. Sonny and Brownie. They do it great.


  3. A compact yet so powerful image: “skyscrapers to sharpen the corporate image”.


    • bankers are like bees,
      but collecting money
      instead of honey…


      • Definitely they are very bad ‘B’s. But you’re right, watching the avid scrabbling of the bees to stuff their pollen sacks, does put one in mind of the money grabbers. The bankers only take, and manipulate markets, heedless of the misery they cause ordinary people. At least the bees have their little kazoos, and make the garden hum, and fertilize our flowers. And some even make delicious honey, and lots of healing substances besides, to say nothing of candle wax. More bees less bankers.

        I did wonder if you might attempt ‘The Flight of the Bumble Bee’ on your kazoo. Now there’s a challenge. (I’m not serious).
