[ Aug.2015 ] The reason why I could not finish the local cake in Kurort Rathen in Saxon Switzerland area in Germany was not only the cake was too rich, but also when I put down my fork once, a bee came and sat on it.
There were many bees flying around here as well as in Dresden.
In fact there were bees sitting on cakes in a cafe in Dresden, but the staff did not mind that.
If the Germans who are the leanest people do not mind, maybe there is no harm.
After getting out of the cafe and coming back to the bus stop, the incident happened.
It was a hot day and I was wearing a cotton dress.
A naughty bee went into my skirt and got panicked, so he stung me on my leg! It was VERY painful.
I had already a back pain that day, so I had to endure the double pain.
When you want to say “misfortunes seldom come alone”, we say “a bee stings on the crying face” in Japanese and I really felt that.
The sharp pain lasted until next morning but after that it gradually went away.
It was a nuisance for me, but the fact that so many bees were there means the condition of environment is good, isn’t it.
