photos from Deutschland and one very tired Sarah

Attempt #3 at posting these photos here…let’s hope it works. (Slideshow at the bottom of the post. Sorry I don’t know how to have it not start automatically, so you might jump in at a random point. It does let you pause and scroll through at your own pace, though — just an FYI.)

Yesterday the sun was out – a rarity – so we took advantage and decided to venture out to Mannheim. Unfortunately, John isn’t here right now to help me remember what all we did so I might have to fill in some of the details later.

We ate lunch at a place on post called Wingers. It was a burger place…oooh hold on, I don’t have my contacts in but it looks kinda like snow out…gotta go look. Ok, I probably need to put my contacts in, but that’s just some very cold rain. It might be borderline sleet. Ew. John got put on detail over by where the PX (post exchange…kinda like a Wal-Mart) is and said he would probably be working outside. How miserable!

Ok, so I was talking about lunch, but who really wants to hear about what I ate? (bacon ranch burger…) We drove around for awhile and I wanted to stop by a pond/part of the river (maybe?), because it looked somewhat like Town Lake. We went for a walk and saw quite a few other people out for walks. Apparently Germans are big on taking walks. A number of the photos I included in my slideshow are from the walk.

Afterward, we went for a drive up something that isn’t quite a mountain, but I also wouldn’t describe it as a hill. It’s bigger than the hills in the Hill Country. So we went on a drive up this mountain-hill-thing in Heidelberg (I think?). A majority of the other photos are from this adventure. I’m sorry my photos don’t do it justice at all, but I couldn’t do too much skill-wise from the inside of John’s car. The rest of the photos are pretty much all from a driving tour (again, from John’s car) of Heidelberg.

I know I’m probably leaving out some key points, but that’s all I’ve got for now. One last thing before I leave you to the slideshow – it was SO weird getting up today before yesterday was officially over in Texas. I got up at 11:00 CST. It’s now 8:46 AM here, and I’m ready for a nap!

    Loving the photos! If you would here I’d have you help me figure out how to put a slideshow of photos on my blog. But you’re not. ***sigh***

    Love the photos Sarah! And love the story telling to go along with it! You look and sound happy! (When are you coming back again? Just kidding).

    I’m so sorry I missed your call, but good to hear your voice. Your pictures are great. Y’all look like you’re having fun. I love that you can type with the German B thing. That is really cool!
