My birthday began with my favourite German weekend ritual: going to the bakery to get some fresh buns for breakfast. Germans typically have meat and cheese on buns for breakfast, and it is truly something special with fresh buns.
Andreas’ sister Conny flew in for the weekend from Northern Germany, and she and Andreas spoiled me by preparing all of the meals and cleaning up. Woo hoo! The high point of the day, however, was our afternoon at the Keidel thermal baths. They have about 10 different pools all with different temperatures, currents, jets, etc. Awesome.
