When traveling I often meet people that are beautiful (on the inside I mean).
Then there’s the type that’s hard to figure.
And then there’s the somewhat bizarre variety.
I’ve got a picture of the somewhat bizarre variety that I’ve been itching to publish.
But I might not ever do so as one of the people in the photograph can be identified.
It’s a picture of a group of nudist bathers at a remote lake in a remote part of Germany.
Clearly, conservative New Zealand got to me and I found the complete nakedness and banal conversations between strangers very surreal.
I didn’t join in stripping of my undies.
It all seemed like a scene in a movie and the final impression was rather comical.
It could have been a mikey take of the Germans by the ‚Pythons‘.
It wasn’t the nakedness that was bizarre, I’ve seen this kind of behaviour before in other countries.
It was a small collection of mixed-age Germans that kept singing ‚Hallelujah‘.
Across the lake drifted religious chants by this group of completely naked people who were waving their arms at the sun.
And that I have a picture of.
It appeared that to all the other naked Germans around the lake it all seemed very normal.
What God was thinking I don’t know.
