Ah Germany... I remember like it was yesterday. Beer and fries!!!!
Here are some pictures of the town I stayed in was called Melsungen. Life there is different. Everywhere you go you can eat French fries. The best restaurant in town serves Snitzel with French fries. The only time you do not get Fries is at breakfast.
The Italian restaurant to the right made one heck of a Snitzel, egg, anchovy dish with fries.
For breakfast they serve you a hard-boiled egg, some rolls, lunchmeat, juice, nuts, lots of cheese and etc. They do not seve scrambled eggs and bacon!
All of the cars are small there. I car barley fit into the front seat. My Kitty would just love thundering through these roads!
If you expect to say in an air-conditioned hotel then do not come here. The windows open to the side and from the top out but they do not have AC! The bedrooms have beds that are at least 12" lower than typical American beds. So is the furniture. I feel like I am playing in a dollhouse. Do not get me wrong. There are many really Big Germans. I do not remember the last time I saw so many Giants over 6' tall in one place! They have some big mean looking boys.
The bathrooms are an experience. The toilets do not have a handle to flush but they have a wall mount switch. Just lean back and flush. That is, as long as you are not sitting in a poorly designed toilet where the back of the seat prohibits flushing. Then you got some work to do...
Do not get me started about the toilet roll dispenser! ONE SQUARE AT A TIME!!! I can not live with one square!!!! I had to get a roll for my self!
The showers... Well there are different kinds but the one I stayed in had a floor level drain with no rim to keep the water in and had a wall that only went half way across the shower. So you either place a bunch of towels in the way or the whole bathroom will be flooded. The faucet was 8' high and just blurted water out like a faucet. Yes there was no spray just a 1.5" diameter stream of water pouring out!
If you are thirsty and you ask for water you do not get bottled water you get spritzer! Yes bland carbonated water! Yuk!
But one can take all of that strangeness once they go to the local tavern and taste the beer! No, the rumors are false the beer is ice cold and it is fantastic! Thank goodness, since the water stunk! If you want a beer you have to wait 5-10 min. This is because they have laws about the speed in which the head descends and when they pour beer they pour some then wait for the head to descend and then poor some moor. Trust me it is worth the wait!
AH THE BEER WAS GOOOOOOOD!!!!
I guess I could have drank a bunch of that beer???
