As I told you, on Saturday night I went and visited Ms. Müller’s little village, Elsdorf. Now as I found out when I punched the place into my GPS, there’s about 15 Elsdorfs in Germany… We’re in this one:
Elsdorf, Rhein-Erft-Kreis, Germany.
It was a pretty little place. Really tiny, really quiet, and quite agrarian. We took a stroll through town, which took maybe 20 minutes, and I bet 15 minutes of that consisted of my taking pictures.
It was nice to get an opportunity to get off the beaten path a bit, and actually check out the German countryside for a change. Beat the hell out of a power plant, and the company wasn’t bad either… Have a look.
“Main Strasse” Ok, not really what it’s called, but it was pretty much the only street in town, so I guess that makes it main street…
Cute little park.
The omnipresent church steeple. Every town in Germany has one, regardless of its size… The house in the foreground is 102 years older than the U.S., according to the house itself.
Not to be a stickler, but I believe they misspelled ‘soccer field.’
And we’re out of town now, maybe 3 minutes down the road from Ms. Müller’s house.
Apparently I don’t know what poisonous shit looks like out here… And I definitely knelt down in the German equivalent of poison ivy for this shot, so you’d best appreciate it.
I like this picture. In case you wanted my opinion.
Decent little sunset.
Wind turbines are everywhere out here.
Pretty. Like this one too.
And finally, Ms. Müller’s driveway at the end of our brief little walk…
And that’s all for this evening… A guy’s got to sleep sometime. Come back soon.
