The effigy mounds are a holy place for Native Americans. They made these mounds/hills to honor their dead or the gods. With a lot of imagination some of them look like bears or snakes. This one is the little bear -of course the kids were utterly disappointed of the "bear" and lacking the political correctness to hide their disappointment. Often I admire the Indian ways to treat nature and the animals in it. On the other hand though, these "Hügelchen" are their prime artwork and legacy -so when Europeans built Versailles and St. Paul's that's what the Indians came up with.... Just wondering.

The date is drawing closer... We'll be heading to the US in four weeks! Let the adventure begin. I will use this blog to let colleagues and friends know what we are up to. I will try to post one photo every week that shows some cultural differences...
