...what's up with the bright green lighting on the tower of the Heiliggeistkirche? It's been up for a while now - is it temporary? Was it a mistake? Because it looks really goofy. We thought the Old Bridge's new lighting was too cheesed up, but this would take the cake. This photo doesn't even do the goofiness justice (it's that green thing that appears to be to the right of the castle):
The weather has been really cruddy this week, but on the upside, it caused a rainbow today in Heidelberg while I was walking along the river! I took a photo on my cell phone, but I can't figure out how to get it on my computer or if that's even possible with my phone/phone plan. As I held up my phone to take it (I always think people look like they're doing something really ritualistic holding up camera phones like that) a guy whizzing by on his bike yelled at me to take a picture of the rainbow. I couldn't tell if he was mocking me because that's clearly what I was already doing, or if maybe he really was thinking I might not have seen it and was just taking a picture of all the nice hills.
In other news, my coworker remarked to me last week that she gets "only 20 days of vacation a year" (this is in addition to all the German public holidays). Hahaha! Oh, Europe.
