So this weekend’s 24 hour travel day culminated in Schwarzenfeld, Germany, about 10 miles from the power plant in which we’ll have the pleasure of toiling away this trip. The town is so small that its Wikipedia entry states only that it exists, and that it’s home to “The melodic death metal band Deadlock.”
Glen and I went on a little stroll upon our arrival to see the place. Unfortunately we didn’t see Deadlock, but other than that, I’m pretty sure we saw the entire town… Check it out.
Our hotel. The Schloss Schwarzenfeld. It and the church are by far the most prominent structures in town.
Place is nice. Better than a lot of our accommodations out here. Used to be a castle, in case you couldn't tell by the fact that it totally looks like a castle.
Some little river out front of the hotel.
They must've forgotten the stars and stripes...
And my humble abode for the time being. Huge as far as European hotel rooms go...
Wandering about the town... Like most of Germany, it's ripe with Catholic imagery.
Some little alleyway. Apropos of nothing, just liked the picture.
The sign for Schwandorf... The home of our power plant du jour.
Come for the Schnitzel. Stay for the wiener art.
And finally, arriving back at our little chateau after dinner.
That’s all for today… It’s time to get some rest and get ready for a two weeks in a power plant…
