cooling towers are part of my Ruhrgebiet-(Ruhr-area)world, you find them in many cities of the region where I live -- it was so strange, we (kids) heard often the expression cooling tower but there w
as no cooling for us in the summer heat (the cooling towers had only a nice name ... they were used for industrial purposes)

Nice set which makes me think about excursions with the family: once I was the child, now I am the father. And your cooling towers are my oaks.

Unfortunately I have no parasol from Tokyo, but at the moment the story about roasting acorns as "ersatz coffee" makes the whole thing interesting enough.

Oh, I never believed the story, when my Dad told us ...

Best wishes

I liked it very much to read about your oaks, the "ersatz coffee" etc..

Best wishes,

p.s.: Have you ever seen (and tasted)Kunsthonig?

liked them all, Angelika :)

Earlier when I worked at a factory we had this cooling tower there, and it would take me to the basics of thermodynamics everytime I went that way :)

these towers have an interesting structure,
