Bridge Update and Dult Prep, May 2015

We’re really, really close to getting our half of the bridge back. I mean, we must be. Right? Pavers are in place, the sidewalls are up. What’s holding us back? Besides the chicken wire, I mean.

Are these guys supposed to be helping with the bridge? Or the museum construction project happening on the site of the old Donaumarkt (just a bit downstream and under the Eiserner Brücke from here)?

Maybe they can’t get there because of how high and fast the river is at the moment.



Or maybe they’re just waiting around for Maidult to get rolling, which as you can see below, is also nearly ready.

Maidult always opens up with fireworks over the river the first evening; maybe they’ll be celebrating the closure of that phase of the bridge construction, too.

    OK. I got “May, but was ist “dult”? Yes, of course I tried Google translate, but the bunch over there told me Maidult means “Maidult.” Oh. OK. I don’t think it’s May Day. Maybe fair? Festival?

    You want a bridge to admire, take a look at this one!

    How’s your weather, by the way? I saw this photo of a tornado in Schwerein — I see that Germany has more tornadoes than most of Europe, but my goodness….

    Oh! and the asparagus/pasta dish was great.

      Fair is a…fair translation. I usually think “carnival.”

      Our weather has been changing every day from rainy to sunny and back, but it’s not unpleasant. We pretty much never get the extreme winds that Northern Germany gets.

What's your take on it?
