Germany April 2011

Usually I gripe about the weather in Germany, but this time is certainly nice. A few impressions from the first days here.

Unusually nice weather this time of year brought hordes of folks to the Lake of Constance.

This isn't a movie star, this is my mom with overwhelming choices of ice cream.

My mom decided on the Schwarzwald Becher

My Spaghetti ice cream seconds before it got inhaled. (It is vanilla ice cream squeezed through a press with raspberry sauce and white chocolate sprinkles)

Yup, we are in Germany.

After we returned from the lake I bumped into Zita Schaedler on the soccer field in Ostrach. This stunning 84-year old lives in our house and she is an icon in this town.

Oh yes, spring has sprung

The plants in our front yard seem super happy with the current weather and it just looks beautiful. The scent of spring is also in the air and of course what is not to like about a stunning blue sky.

I was cranky for a while because my beloved Crank t-shirt endured a million washes just like Seinfeld's Golden Boy and it eventually had to be taken out of the rotation. Now it is finally available again and you'll soon see me wearing one virtually every day. :-)
