Remscheid, Germany - 23rd December 2008

By: olgamaus

Hi Mummy,
today we had to pick up two packages from two different post offices. We went to the post office in Katja's lunch break. Katja received a package with a beautiful carved wooded rat in it. It was the package which you sent to her. She really loves the cute little rat.

Than we had to walk to another district to pick up another package, some bocks she had ordered. Nobody knows why the postman did not send it back to the post office in the town centre, but to one in a different district.

On our way I saw a little bit more of the town centre although we had foggy weather today. Here you can see the beginning of the pedestrian area. On the space behind me a farmer's market is located on Thuesdays and Fridays.


This is one of the churches in the town centre.


Parts of the municipality are located in this building, as well as  the adult education centre.


We than walked to the district Hasten where we had to pick up the second package. Here many old houses remained, as well tenements as factory buildings.




Katja's boss was celebrating his birthday. So we already had some glasses of sparkling wine when we went to the christmas market for the last time to drink one or two eggnocks.

Here you can see the illuminated town hall.


The average German drinks Gluehwein. (hot spiced wine), but Katja is allergic  to cinnamon which is always used to make Gluehwein, so she takes an eggnock (or two). Eggnock is made of hot white wine, egg yolk and sugar or sometimes with advocaat, It tastes really good :D
