(English version follows below)

Manche Sachen sind ja schon sehr absurd. Letzten Herbst zum Beispiel wurden bei uns um die 600 Bäume im Wald gefällt. Die Waldkinder haben wochenlang nur noch Baumfäller gespielt. Gestern wurden dann ein paar der riesigen Buchenstämme in einen Container geladen. Der kommt jetzt nach Hamburg. Von dort werden die Stämme nach China verschifft. Und dort werden dann Essstäbchen draus gemacht.



Sometimes, life’s absurd. Last fall, for instance, about 600 trees were cut in our forest. The children from the forest kindergarden played “tree cutters” for weeks. Yesterday, some of the huge beech logs were put in a container. The container is now on its way to Hamburg. From there, the logs are going to be shipped to China. And there, they will be turned into chopsticks.



About erdhummel

Familial entropy - that's an insight into our current life which has been fundamentally changed last summer when our daughter was born. Having studied in Cottbus, Germany, and worked/studied in Edinburgh, Scotland, we momentarily live in a small town in Switzerland where Karsten is trying to save the environment and Freddie is trying to save our sanity. Since there is not much time for elaborate, long emails while doing that, we thought a blog might be a good option to smuggle ourselves into the lifes of our friends.
