Not half as interesting without the fairground.
This page gives you a lot of information. Thank you!
Of course. And I'm off again in 4 months time. :D
MD... I guess once every couple of years is reasonable. However, a quick review of the highlights afterwards would be most excellent, so the rest of us can be jealous.
It's been 2 years since my last escape!
This sounds suspiciously like somebody having a life outside of OT!
No .... I won't be taking my laptop. I have a kindle, maybe I'll take that. I have a 6hr train journey but I love looking out of the window ........ and people watching. :D
You mean you are not taking your laptop with you, M D ?
This is unacceptable!!!
Moose ..... just remembered ...... I'm off for a short break so I won't be here next Monday when I think they'll dismantle the wheel.
Will do. :D
Hi MD... Give a shout if you catch them doing that. 60 meters!!
Hi Moose ..... that is interesting. I'll try to remember to watch them dismantle it.
An interesting piece of trivia from Wikipedia.
"Other notable transportable wheels include the 60-metre (197 ft) Steiger Ferris Wheel, which was the world's tallest transportable wheel when it began operating in 1980. It has 42 passenger cars, and weighs 450 tons. On October 11, 2010, it collapsed at the Kramermarkt in Oldenburg, Germany, during deconstruction."
Yes. I missed watching them assemble. When everything is taken away it looks like a patch of land where people are able to park trucks. It's fascinating to watch the big wheel being taken down.
Nice view. It must be this http://www.weser-ems-halle.de/tickets/410-oldenburger-kramermarkt-2017
I'd love to be here.
Soon be time for the fair.
All over now.
