after our short stop in cologne,

david and i arrived in frankfurt for our next two nights.

after being in florence for two and a half months,

i haven't really been able to eat a lot of food that's different

than the native country's typical dishes

(i.e. italy = paninis and pasta, france = crepes, belgium = waffles)

but frankfurt is a very industrial city

so we had chinese food for dinner both nights (:

anyway.. back to frankfurt:

the portrait/painting room

these are only 3 of about.. 15 rooms.

the house is 4 stories and gigantic.

then.. we FINALLY found a mailbox!

we bought these postcards in paris,

wrote them in brussels,

bought stamps for them in cologne,

and finally mailed them in frankfurt.

and even though we were happy about the above mentioned chinese food,

we were also happy with the german beer and sausage

(though i don't think i could eat that every day..)

with the river main

and... because frankfurt is a fairly small town

we decided to take a little boat tour

and ride along the main

we were tired.

so we came back to our room

and watched german tv

(we got 3/4 cities in this german word search!)

can you find them?
