Penguins, penguins everywhere / Follow-up: A few thoughts around myself and Asperger’s

leave a comment »

In a recent text on myself and Asperger’s, I mentioned two penguin coincidences. Doing so, I missed a third: Wuppertal, my city of residence, is filled with penguin statues.

Apparently, the Wuppertaler Zoo has a particular interest in penguins, which led to a festival/campaign/whatnot possibly fifteen years ago. (This was long before I moved here.) During this whatnot, a great number of mass-produced statues were placed around the city, and many still remain.
