I had a cold for the last week. I did everything I could to prevent Lulu from getting it. Just as I was to announce that I was over it - she said her throat was sore. Bummer. We are scheduled to go to a convention in Leipzig on Sunday for 5 days.
Lulu sent me to the store for a few supples. As long as I was walking about 5 blocks - I took my new Canon camera. I focused on some of the different vehicles here. Things are very nice here but different. First off gasoline its taxed to $5 or $6 a gallon. This makes people consider other things - like bikes - small cars - public transportation - even their campers are tiny.
In the month that we have been in Germany - we have seen snow flurries 2 times. Nothing stuck. We saw rain once. Temps have mainly been in the 40s - and we have had lots of sun - although the days are short.
I took these random pictures on the walk.
I stopped at the pharmacy and got 4 different meds for Lulu's cold. I was wanted - no more than 6 a day! :-) You can see the pharmacy from our front door.
