Breakfast in Thuringia

July 21, 2003

< < previous | next > >

From Münster, we drove east, into places where English isn't so common -- though, Claudia later told us, if we had known a little Russian, it might have gotten us somewhere. But no language skills are necessary to land a giant German breakfast -- meat with a side of meat, and some egg and cheese thrown in for good measure.

After breakfast, while Jen scoured the quiet town for a bottle of water without bubbles, the girls played in the creek, dodging the occasional dead rat drifting downstream. Click on the poor-quality image at the bottom for a short (8-second), poor-quality movie clip of a crazy little Egyptian dance -- worth suffering through the bad quality, the father said.
