Dreaming of Deutschland.

OK, so don’t blame me if I want to go back to Germany. I know, yesterday I wanted to live the life of the Jetsons cartoon and now this. It’s an amazing place, and it really is like stepping back in time, with the intact, centuries old buildings.

I lived there in 1977-1979, and I’m thrilled to have the memories and the photos. I didn’t have kids at the time, so traveling was a breeze. An evening walk to the local Trinkhalle was an adventure as many of the German people would greet me with Guten Tag or good day. The local Trinkhalle offered up Coca-Cola, ice cream or a nice cold beer, (German size = BIG.) Castles were a part of the everyday landscape. And yes, the people really do drive fast on the Autobahn, but then, a Porsche is destined to be speedy.

The German food was wonderful, bratwurst and pomme frites or french fries were yummy any time of the day.  I hope to return to Germany someday, though I know things won’t be the same some 30 years later, but the beauty and friendly people will always be a part of my memory.
