Flag of Germany  , Hesse,
Friday, July 2, 2010

Yes, well, on the way down to Eva's home town, we realised that we were to go through Göttingen - just the place where Eike (another friend from J's in NZ) is living! What a great time for a catch up, we thought, so we did just that! Funnily enough, it did feel rather surreal, the 3 of us sitting there catching up over a beer (not the beer part) - just the fact that when we all met, we probably would never have guessed that a year down the track we'd be indulging in the same habits in Germany!
Eike gave us a bit of a wee tour, in and around the square, where there was a PhD student engaging in yet another German locality tradition - this time something to do with a statue of a lady with Geese?? Odd. And once again i marveled at the beautiful architecture (how old it is!), we had a well overdue chat and then it was time to get the next train! Funny how time flies, and also that it always seems to feel so familiar, even when you haven't seen a person in over a year!!
So, yes, just a quick mention... pics up soon... next stop Korbach!
Tootles!  :)
