Via the BBC – really pretty views of London and an interesting article as well.
I LOVE this picture of my sister and I. This was our first night in Munich. I haven’t sorted through pictures yet, but will do add a more comprehensive post once I do.
Next German class starts this week!
Started out at Amsterdam Centraal.
Then, lunch at a brewery:
Followed by a long walk in old town:
On to the Fashion district (after cake):
Back to the hotel for lovely dry German wine.
The next day was a long train ride to Munich.
Our view at the hotel
You would not believe the stairs up to the lobby at Hotel Clemens. Thankfully we are only one more flight past this one. Dinner was at The Pantry. I had Oven dish with cauliflower, mashed potatoes and ground beef. Brian had hotstamp with sausage.
Cafe ‘t Smalle:
Quick note on this, as I had intended to write this up a while ago. We saw MacBeth in Lone Fir Cemetery last month with Cindy. Put on by the Portland Actors’ Guild, it was fantastic and perfectly suited for a pioneer cemetery. It was a rare break from the nasty hot weather Portland has had this summer, and practically a flawless summer evening. We packed some wine, cheese and sourdough, and were in heaven. Lying on the blanket, looking up at the night sky and listening to the leaves rustle as Lady MacBeth slowly unravels…..so great.
What kind of wine does your favorite cemetery serve?
Wonderin’ when I get to win.
Mural in progress on Alberta Street, looks gorgeous.
Am really liking all of the murals happening around town, great to see art as you are walking about.
Jellyfish! In Oregon or Chicago, can’t remember.
This The Guardian article on jellyfish is pretty awesome. http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2015/jul/03/barrel-jellyfish-invasion-britain-beaches
