|Regensburg Dez 08|
I think the photos tell the story of our trip pretty well. Unfortunately the weather did not cooperate with us - it was just as rainy and cold as Heidelberg, so our photos are a little dreary. But, we hope they still show off how cute Regensburg is, at least a little bit. It's full of little winding streets and colorful old buildings, with the primary downside being that there are a surprising number of cars parked right in front of where you want to get a photo of a neat old house, or driving up your tail as you stroll through a pedestrian area.
On the first night, Cliff and Sarah took us to a Kurdish restuarant called Exil, which we would definitely recommend! I had a dish which included some kind of fried bread coated in a yogurt sauce, which is as delicious as it sounds, and then even more delicious than that. Another highlight was seeing swimmers carrying torches in the cold, cold Danube - see the photo album! We still are not sure what that was all about, but it was cool. (And, frankly, it looked a bit dangerous.) Being in Regensburg felt like being in another country - and in a sense, Bavaria is a land all its own. The accent was hard to understand and things were just different enough to feel a little foreign. We liked it.
I'm feeling lazy today, so here's hoping this post is free of odd typos. Coming soon: Snickerdoodles!!
