Chocolate and Mercedes

Quote of the Day: “I might leave Allen behind, but I’m not leaving my chocolate behind!”–Rhonda

Shopping Tip of the Day: “The A series Mercedes is Allen’s new fav car.”–Allen

In between all of the merriment, we found Koblenz, Germany, to be a delightful city. The German Corner, or Deutsches Eck, is the focal point of the city with its imposing national monument to Kaiser Wilhelm at the point where the Mosel River joins the River Rhine. The Altstadt (Old Town) was stunning. The city fair was in full swing–strolling medieval performing troupe, German food stalls, medieval handicraft-making booths– the iron forger was very interesting–and beer booths and wine taverns made for a very interesting day. The fair was set amidst the beautiful surroundings of the ancient buildings with pastel colors and beautiful exterior scroll work. Live bands were providing entertainment. We ate and drank our way through the fair and also toured the Prince Elector Palace Gardens. The palace exterior was humongous and majestic. In the evening, we ate in a four-generation family-run restaurant that was so authentic it hurt. And the food was amazing–when Chef Allen says it is at the top of his list, that is noteworthy. WEG
