Allen finally found a chair to his liking in Heidelberg, Germany. In an authentic regional restaurant, the biergarten interior had a throne-like chair at one table, and Allen immediately claimed it as his own, declaring that “he was from royal blood” and so he deserved to sit there. Rhonda blamed his delusional thinking on high blood pressure.
We were able to see some of the Altstadt (Old Town) and visit several beautiful Lutheran churches in this university city on the Neckar River. We were able to hear the pipe organ in concert at the Heiliggeistkirche (Holy Ghost Church), a beautiful Lutheran Church. We then visited a large Christmas store with German handmade items and got into a Christmas mood. Today we also added tram to the modes of transportation our friends have experienced while on our German journey. We are having a splendid time and collecting beer coasters from all the biergartens we are visiting along the way.
Oh, and, by the way, we had to pry Allen out of his throne chair. “I am a King,” he cried, as we led him out the door. WEG
