   After another delicious breakfast, I got some work done for work (yuck) and we headed to Melanie and Andy's for another barbecue.  We had to help them out and eat the rest of the meat and drink the rest of the beer before Andy left for Brazil for a business trip.  Oh rats.  Before we went there we decided to stop by the Externsteine at Horn-Bad Meinberg, which is a rock formation famous in pagan circles.  It is has five sandstone pillars that rise out of the earth in an area which is has very few rocks.  You are able to climb up a couple of the taller pillars as well. 
   It was supposedly a site for the Teutonic peoples in the Middle Ages, and it really does stick out of nowhere - the view is impressive from the top.  Unfortunately the weather is poor, and we don't stay too long.  We climbed up one of the pillars and I snapped a couple of shots, and we were off to beat the rain.  From there we drove through Detmold and saw some of the architecture.  Once through Detmold, we went up to the Hermann statue, which was so socked in with rain and clouds we didn't even walk up to it - someone walked past and said they couldn't even see the top of the statue.  So screw that we said, let's get to the beer!
   The evening was fun again - more beer, steak, sausage, stuffed peppers, stuffed mushrooms - I made another key lime with a different crust and it had more of the key lime flavor this time, but still not perfect.  We stayed up and chatted some more before everyone headed off to bed.
