Ladenburg, Germany

Ladenburg is a beautiful, and very old, city. Depending on who you talk to, it's either Germany's oldest city or has the oldest university in Germany. We had dinner in a restuarant that was built in 1638. It was an experience to eat in "Die Kartoffel" - they serve you a very nice salad, a nice big potato (of course) with delicious Sahne and then your steak comes out - it's sizziling and raw on a very hot stone! You cook it to your liking on the stone (yes, a stone and it stays hot a very long time).. amazing stuff!

Mannheim, Germany

The Stadtbahn into Mannheim is a wonderful ride. Although it's unseasonably warm here, it was a blast to go into Mannheim on the train.

Mannheim is a large city and reminds me a lot of Paris (believe it or not, I know it sounds silly). Maybe it's my virgin American eyes, but it has some very cool places and cafes/coffeshops/bakeries everywhere.

Tonight, we went downtown for dinner and it was another wonderful meal in Europe! We sat outdoors in the great little place called "Hemingways". The waitress spoke some English and with our very limited, broken, mangled German we were able to have a great meal and a lot of fun (can you say Knoblauch Es ist Weiss, Ja?)

Photos are not uploading tonight... I'll try to update this tomorrow with images.
