Hope your week got off to a good start. Here we have a long Whitsunday weekend and today is a holiday.
I have a hybrid tag for the Beverages challenge at Tag Tuesday, and once again it turned out to be a coffee tag - no idea how that happened again!
Tuesday is also time for Elizabeth's Tea stands for Tuesday party, so here a warm welcome to all the ladies of the T gang.
I have of course drunk lots of coffee in the course of the week, one of them at an Italian Cafe in Oberkassel:
I loved this sign:
'Ice has relatively few vitamins, so you need to eat more of it'
The coffee there was great, served with burnt almonds:
And on some days I treat myself to a scoop of bitter-choc ice at my fave ice-parlour here - but only if I have walked more than 19000 steps on that day:
Last week I went 'back in time' and visited the street where we lived when I first came to Germany. Most of the houses, including the one where we lived, have been pulled done and now there are blocks of flats everywhere. A few of the old houses are still at the end of the street:
The old village cross is still there, too:
Then I walked along the Rhine, with a good view of the Medienhafen, Gehry Buildings and Post Office tower from the other side:
This little crow was sitting on a wire watching us:
Here you can see the Altstadt 'Schlossturm' across the Rhine through the trees:
There are beautiful houses from the late 19th and early 20th centuries there, here a few pics:
Loved this piano sculpture:
Strange beasts guarding the houses:
And some flower photos taken by Harry:
That's all for today. My next post will have lots of 42s for those who are interested!
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
