the toilettes in Germany - what can I say, there are pros and cons. More pros, however, such as THEY ARE THE CLEANEST RESTROOMS I HAVE EVER BEEN IN! so clean, and nice, private stalls, no chance for anyone to peek in and they are situated a good distance away from the eating areas, how nice for the people sitting next to restrooms. The only cons would be, there are not a lot of them and sometimes you have to pay, but they is definitely on the low side, since they are so impressively clean!
Sunday we went and had lunch at a German restaurant. I had steak sirloin with caramelized onions and fried potatoes and brussel sprouts, both with bacon - very American in name only! Portions and flavor were mouth-watering and the potatoes -omg! yum!!
then we were off to the castle overlooking Heidelberg. That was awesome, too, and I stood there imagining knights and damsels walking the courtyard and Kings and Queens eating large roast pig at the tables!! Our tour guide was funny, too. We took the stairs back down and stopped at a kaffee shop to warm our tummies and our hands/feet. I had a slice of cake. So far, the cakes I have had have been yummy to look at but lacking in taste. Disappointment there. So- good to look at or good to eat!? :-) I choose - good to eat!

So, after the fear of being stranded in Amsterdam left me, I decide I would rather try that then have to spend the night in Houston, so.........
