Fields of Gold


Okay, so not so much “fields” of gold as it is “walls” of gold, but the sentiment is there nonetheless.  One morning we were all invited to visit the town hall for a special reception with the mayor in the city’s famed Goldener Saal (Golden Hall).

Don’t touch ANYTHING, campers!!!


Our conductor, Michael, was telling me that after World War II the hall was never restored to its original glory and to celebrate the city’s “I don’t know, 1,000th or 2,000th” anniversary renovations were finally undertaken. I’m sorry… 1,000th OR 2,000th anniversary, that’s quite a gap of uncertainty there, right? (FYI: it was, in fact, the 2,000th anniversary).

And don’t think for even one second that I got away without getting another photograph with a politician!

There’s nothing I love more than a photo op in my Blue Lake uniform and badge :-/
