The day dawned sunny - the first on this tour- enabling us to become our summer selves for our jaunt back to Trier. Luxembourg being shut up tight for a holiday honoring the Assumption of the Virgin just about everybody in Luxembourg also headed for Trier.
We'll be in Italy briefly in a few days. Adam's ready. Off we went to see the Roman gate Porta Nigra
Casey is very studious about what is around us and reads to us from his guidebook
Remembering Cortez being engaged against his will by a faux monk in not so faux medieval swordplay in a medieval setting last time we were in Germany ( not to mention his operatic origins)
Impossible to resist ( and why would you) the various delights on offer all around us
The pretzels were warm and unctuous
Apples were involved in this
Quarkballchen come in fives
A very satisfactory day. We leave at 11am tomorrow for Kiedrich and our concert for the Rheingau Music Festival.
