How Lucky Can You Get


The second day in Stassfurt Frank took me to a nearby town (I don’t remember the name of the city, sorry!) to do a little sight seeing.  In the thirty to forty five minutes it took to get there we drove by three castles… you know, just like in Texas.  Except instead of castles it’s usually    .

In walking through the streets of the town we passed by a metal shop and stepped in for a second.  The forger was working on a weather vane (I think) for one of the nearby buildings!

A further walk into the heart of the city led to the main plaza, at which this perfectly Germanic building was located.  Frank informed me that people come from all over the country to get married here.  Umm… no wonder!
