Your beans are good photographers! The photos are stunning.
Trier is indeed the oldest....BUT AUGSBURG is the second oldest:))
I should have said I do not like American ice creme...because it does not compare the German ice creme which is far better!!
And instead of peanut butter...we eat Nutella of course! What could be better than hazelnuts with chocolate...anything with chocolate is great!
You are a very handsome pirate...in the second photo with
your tatoo....oh my Stella is a lucky lass:)

Wow, your beans take excellent photos - they are not blurry or shakey like my mamma's photos. Living in North America, we never get the chance to see really ancient things. 17 BC is amazing!!

Dragonheart - Thank you for bring back such lovely memories. I grew up half an hour away from Trier and it was a frequent weekend destination for my family. At the time, it was also the only McDonalds in a 4 hour radius. I loved going to their winter/
Christmas outdoor bazaar. Thank you for showing a wonderful childhood memory for me.
