Germany is in full bloom, with pussy willows in the flower stalls, gearing up for Easter. Visitor from the States - and former Bamberg resident - leads me on a beautiful, if uphill, walk to Altenburg, the medieval castle on the hill.
Lots of sights this week: Bamberg's Artisan Christmas Market (fifth and final market in town), beautiful snowfall and my walk to Weipelsdorf in it, plus a few more German Christmas traditions and Nativity scenes around town.
My first of several visits to BMW Welt in Munich, Germany. It's next to the Olympia Park where the 1972 Olympics were held and those terrorists created such a stir. It was a peaceful visit, though, and one of my longtime wishes came true!
Opening procession photos of Bamberg Zaubert, annual circus celebration in downtown Bamberg, Germany. Musings on life in Bavaria, open-air markets, dirndl racks in department stores, and European traditions.
