September 26, 2007: Germany


  I woke up last night about 7 p.m. Central Time – that is about 2 a.m. here in Radoltzen, Germany.  WIDE awake.  My body thinks it is 7 p.m.   I did manage to go back to sleep after about an hour.  I chatted on-line for a bit.  Caught up on the latest news from the BBC and checked out the weather of course.

  Woke up this morning to a cloudy sky.  Light rain was falling.  More of a drip here and a drip there.  Not too bad.  So I packed my camera up and threw on a jacket and headed outside.  The downtown city center is about a mile from where I am staying.  Not a bad walk at all.  It is always fun to walk around a town you are not familiar with.  This town has a lot of cobblestone streets.  The main city center has been cut off from vehicles.  Lot of people walking around and a few bikes.  I sat by the fountain for awhile and just watched people walk around. 

  Near the church in the center of the town there were a lot of people selling flowers, vegetables, farm produce, and a few arts and crafts.  I believe the outdoor produce market is a daily event.  With the dreary sky above and the bright colors of flowers and vegetables below it made for a nice walk. 

  I am tired now though!  Perhaps a nap is in order.  I guess everyone is just starting to wake up back home.  It is 6 a.m. in Toronto and 5 a.m. in Paducah.

  We are heading for London on Thursday afternoon.  I was hoping to catch Paul Potts…the opera guy that I posted about a few months ago.  He is not performing though.  Perhaps another time!  He does have a new cd out…I will have to see if they have it for sale in the city.

 Nice foggy morning here in Southwest Germany



that would be me with the fountain art 


Still a lot of flowers blooming around this small town


Some fall colors as well!


Memories of the war…
