Eisberg im Regen../ Iceberg in the rain

(english version under continue reading)

Weil die Zeit davon lief haben wir in strömenden Regen zu viert die Bettlaken auf dem Gerüst befestigt. Bei der Größe des Eisbergs ( 7m hoch 16m lang und 8m breit) hatte ich natürlich mit 43 Bettlaken und Bezügen nicht genug Material. Und dabei waren die Laken und Bezüge, die wir von den verschiedenen Hotels in Keelung bekommen hatten, riesig.  Ich hatte jeweils 6  oder 9 Laken zusammengenäht. Es war nicht einfach, aber sehr aufregend,  bei Platzregen mit Gummistiefeln in dem Gerüst herumzuklettern und diese Menge an Stoff am Bambus zu befestigen. Werde ich nie vergessen!

Since time was running out we had to put up the sheets in the rain, and it became quite heavy rain. Due to size of the structure ( 7m high, 16 m long and 8 m large) it was obvious that it would not be enough material to cover everything. Although, most of the 43 sheets and covers I had, were huge. They were donated by several hotels in Keelung and I had sown always 6 or 9 of them together to make larger pieces that we could pull over the structure. It was not easy at all to climb with rain boots in the structure while the rain was pouring down  and to attach this mass of fabric to the bamboo. But it was very exciting and  so much fun, I will never forget this!
