The forest was filled with fog this morning and the dew was dripping from the trees. No wind. No sun to be seen for orientation. If you take two times the wrong turn, you might get seriously lost. But we made it fine, up the mountain to a small hut running a simple restaurant. It is called "Koeppelhuette". Just before arriving there for lunch, we actually came out of the fog into the sunshine with a clear blue sky. It is a nice moment when the sun breaks through the haze and trees. This is Westerwald. It is a region, East of the Rhine and North of the Lahn rivers, with quite some reputation to be rough and cold, and where the smallest sunshine is touching. As I grew up here, it brings of course up all kinds of memories, and a feeling of home. I enjoy very much being back in nature. It has not to be a forest, but when thinking about criteria to judge which place might be nice to live in the future, pollution is a no go.
