It’s in the air, people! Spring! How do I know? I’ve started sneezing. HUZZAH! We had a “warm” day last weekend and went downtown. Saturday is market day. Look at these flowers:
Seriously, I wish you could smell this photo. The tulips were so fragrant and there was enough of a breeze to carry the scent across the platz..
And the biggest sign that spring is here is that the outdoor cafes are packed. Look at all the people eating outside. I should mention that “warm” was about 48 degrees. It was really cold in the shade. This is what people mean when they say Germans are “hardy.”
Market days are awesome. Fresh eggs?
Perhaps some stinky kase (cheese)?
Maybe Greek olives are more your thing.
Fresh fruit? We bought some clementines from them and they were so good. Fresh from Spain and super juicy.
Look at these beautiful peppers.
If you’ve got nothing better to do on a Saturday afternoon, why not grab a rack (or 2) of beer, go sit on the fountain and get ripping drunk. Drunk enough to sing. Loudly. See Indy and M over there? Yeah, we sat there and ate our yummy clementines until the drunk people (who were really friendly, BTW) decided to light up a few joints. Not illegal here, but still not something we wanted to be around.
Ah, spring! You bring out the flowers, outdoor cafes and drunks. Oh, and sneezes. Ah-chooooo!
BTW, this post was written with Windows Live Writer. It. Is. Awesome. Thanks Southern Lady!
