Non-bathers are watching you.

Berlin pool, crowded.
Diving board waves and toys in my face.
People sticking to the edges like mussels to the rocks.Slalom swimming,
water splashing, spitting,
feet hitting,

A long black hair first winds itself around my right wrist, then another one around my left one, just to get stuck in the wristband key.

The weirdest part of it all is the entrance area pool window that turns swimmers into zoo animals.

Despite of it all I stubbornly did my 100 rounds. But this was my first and last time at the pool.
