🏙☁️🏃🏻♂️ Out & back 3.5 mile run along the #Landwehrkanal to the Dovebrücke(1) just before dark, after being cooped up indoors all day @Mozilla #Brrrlin All Hands.
I ran past where I had gone on Monday (https://tantek.com/t54o1) until the path ended and I had to cross a couple of bridges to resume another branch of the canal. After another bridge I noticed a quirky bold blue industrial building on tall stilts with a giant pink pipe(2) looping out, under, and back in, like a massive intestine resting on the opposite shore of the canal.
A brightly colored orange & yellow houseboat was docked on the near shore(3). A little up the shore was an object that looked like a giant bright yellow mallet from a video game(4). For a moment my years of practice with adventure problem solving video games kicked in.
I stood back(5) and briefly tried to assess if I needed to grab the mallet before hopping onto the houseboat to cross the canal, then use the mallet to bust into the pink pipe to enter the blue building on stilts where presumably there'd be a boss of some sort inside to defeat and/or someone to rescue.
Decided to skip that level and keep running. Ran under another bridge where I encountered another pink pipe(6), purpose unknown. There are various brightly colored (pink, purple, etc.) exposed pipes adjacent to public footpaths across Berlin. I have no idea if they’re functional, decorative, or both.
Checked the time at the next bridge, realizing I was beyond my temporal halfway point, ran up to take a photo looking down the canal the way I came(7) before running back at a quicker pace, without stopping for any more photos.
