Both my colleague and I have been to Heidelberg before, and we've done the castle, etc. So yesterday we wandered around the shopping district, browsed in interesting shops, and people (and dog!) watched. We had lunch (including a German beer of course) in the square in front of the courthouse. We got to watch couples leave the courthouse after getting married, and be greeted by family and friends. One couple had to balance on what looked like a bosu ball while kissing, another couple was made to hula-hoop. I'm not kidding.
Here are some pictures from the day:
Lots of bikes parked at the train station
One of many lovely fountains
A closer look -- so many varieties of spargel. Yum!
View down a side street
View down another side street (I liked the side streets)
Cute old dog - wirehaired dacshund (?)
Lab in Starbucks.
You knew I'd have to find a Starbucks, didn't you?
She says he hates to be without her so she brings him to work.
Today we went to another nearby town. I haven't loaded those pics yet - I'll post them tomorrow!
