MERRY CHRISTMAS

Christmas 1914 and almost miraculously the guns fall silent for a short time along the so-called Western Front. At five locations British and German soldiers play football.

The Up-train





The Up-train 


At the top of the hill 
the name of the station 
is heaven, 

*

And travellers proceed 
to the exit, 
each with their goods.

*

Several go 
down, 
on the next bus

*

  3. I am watching a programme about Vienna, the story of Vienna in 1908, a city of creativity and dangerous tensions. I will visit it soon and I will climb the steps, up, not down.

  4. Hi Rachel, the steps are in Innsbruck. The train stations were designed by a British architect lady , unfortunately I can't remember her name. From the outside this particular station resembles a landed UFO.
