Someone pulled a blanket of clouds over the city and the temperature stays around +13C though there is no prospect of rain. Meanwhile I've stuck with German dative case. After I've passed more or less successfully through the nominative and accusative ones I've been surrounded by a bunch of new pronouns, articles, verbs, simple and combined prepositions (like vom and beim) that make my head spin. The irony is this is still level A1 so in case I'm ever able to pass to level A2 the mere idea of what fantastic beasts dwell on B1 will make me think of staying over there for as long as possible.

Today I've got 1.5km covered in the pool in one sitting once again though headache prevented me from continuing my usual exercise till full 2km range. Anyway I feel great. Now there is heavy downpour on the street that prevents me from going home to have a rest at the end of the week.

After sunburns I'd got over last weekend my skin's started to peel off. Belly and upper arms are the most affected areas and the lotion I used for protection as well as sunscreen didn't help. It doesn't cease to ache though.

It sounds strange but old plastic bags that are available at every big grocery store (the big ones that one has to buy rather than small ones available for free) serve much longer than new ones. I don't dispose them until they tear apart and their handles go off but the new ones could be reused just for a couple of times while two veterans that have many holes in them and look like if they have already been disposed are still in service after a few months of regular use. Old soldiers never die they say...

I've just finished reading Pushkin's Eugene Onegin. It was the second time I've read the novel, this time not in my native language. It was very impressive how the translator was able to keep the atmosphere and author's expressiveness of language. As the original was the first attempt to write something more sensible in Russian at the time when French was the language of aristocracy the translator did his job perfectly.

On this glorious day I was able to swim 1.5km non-stop in 39 minutes. The guy who crossed the river last Saturday (1km distance) in 13 min would have probably laughed into my face but my coach who wasn't present at the time said I would be able to cross the same river next year. Now there is no back off but my legs are already shaking.
