|One of the drink pyramids; so pretty at nightfall!|
|The sunset was so beautiful last night! Photos don't really do the colors justice.|
At the market yesterday I felt compelled to take my MIL's advice about drinking hot beverages to help with my cold! I don't think she meant to have Gluehwein! I tried hot white apple wine. It was very tasty, from what I could taste. I had to experience the white version for the sake of B, who is not a fan of traditional spiced wine. It didn't seem to have the same hint of cinnamon and cloves, but it was still delicious! This tasting made me think that I've been going about my experiments all wrong, though. I haven't tried normal Gluehwein yet; which I probably should, and then I can use that taste as the control for future variants.
|Here was my target: "Weisser Apfelgluehwein fuer Kenner." Only for those who know about it?|
|Mug action! This mug depicts a scene from the Bochum Christmas market. I have no idea why we have glasses from Bochum in Bonn.|
|Attack of the mechanized stuffed animals.|
That's right, Dad! More stuffed animals that move and sing! If you thought the moose was spooky, you clearly haven't seen this department store display! I never noticed this scene before, so maybe Galleria Kaufhof just revealed it on Tuesday.
|Who is looking at who?|
And a video, so you can really get an idea of what is going on! My favorite is the monkey that is raking snow. Very few of the animals in this display seem to be native winter species!
