We were staying at Sara’s place, but the wedding itself is in Langenau, where Dietmar lives, so we’ve moved to his house. It also has a CO2 spritzer, so we’re happy. It also has electric venetian blinds. They are very cool.
One thing I have forgotten to mention is spelt. Thea is allergic to a lot of things, like wheat, but she can eat spelt. In Germany, spelt is called “dinkel”. I can’t stop talking about the dinkels. I think it’s the coolest thing ever.
Langenau is near Ulm, which has a Münster. It is the tallest church in the world, but it isn’t a cathedral because of how bishop’s don’t sit in it. We didn’t climb it, and it was cold and damp. But it was very cool. And large.
I was able to get Zoe to sing inside the church, but I tried not to be too loud in case that was considered rude in german culture. But Zoe did write out a prayer and hung it up in the church: “Thanks. Hallelujah God for Germany. From Zoe.” Good thing she clarified who it was from, it was a big church and all. She made sure it didn’t fall down by securing it with 8 tacks. That’s my girl.
We walked along the city wall of Ulm too, and visited the game store! Huzzah! I didn’t know what to buy though, so I will have to return. We did stop off in an Abt store, which is an all purpose store. They had boardgames too and Kuhhandel! I bought it for Matt, whether he wants it or not.
Oh, and the best thing I found was the public washroom. It cost 30 cents to use and had this cool ‘swoosh’ sound as the doors opened, like it was a bathroom from Star Trek:
When I was done, it closed and then you could hear it disinfect itself from the soiling of the Errol. All in all, it was a very enjoyable and I highly recommend this toilet for everyone to use. Five stars!
