Hello everybody, Welcome to my favorite day of the week. Yup, it's Sunday's in my City along with Unknown Mami.
Is there anyone who has gotten impatient waiting for Spring?? Well, I have!! The branches all around are still bare, but we have begun to notice teeny tiny bursts of new life. And also, the ice cream parlors in our village have now begun business. They were closed for winter. So, not wanting to wait till it got warm, we went out on a little walk down the village to have our first cone for the year!!!!
Let me show you, how a typical German village looks like during the weekend?? Bare!!! Yes, everything is closed, except for the restaurants. Shops, banks, business establishments, everybody are closed. You have the entire cobbled streets all to yourself. On top, is the picture of the Altes Rathaus or Old Townhall. Here we have small concerts or talks happening. We have a NewTownhall for the official affairs and gatherings.
On days like these, it is nice to window shop. Shops here are pretty and quaint. During the week, you can go in and just have a look around without actually having to buy something. I am also surprised by the fact that you need not leave your belongings locked outside in lockers, unlike in India. People trust each other here and are pretty honest.
Buildings here are typical German with the timbered houses thus giving a medieval look. Towards Spring and whole of Summer, you will see pretty geraniums hanging out from every window sill. A sight to behold.
We did have our first ice cream cone for the year. And guess what? In all the excitement, I forgot to capture a pic...:D Will save that for another Sunday. A picture of all our Eis(Ice) parlors along with the delightful creams they offer.
So, here's a shot of the first signs of Spring...:) Do not forget to visit Unknown Mami and see what the rest of the world has to offer.
