One of the highlights of our days in Frankfurt is a visit to Goethe house.
Wolfgang Goethe was a giant in German literature and it is estimated that he possessed an IQ somewhat north of 150. He is considered to be the Shakespeare of Germany. His ancestral home is filled with original 16th century antiques of exquisite beauty.
Nearby is the Leica Gallery, and having bought my first real camera in Frankfurt in 1959 (a Leica M2), I went in to fondle the latest photo jewelry (i.e., equipment). I spoke to the owner who was, it turned out, the son of the man from whom I bought my first camera, over 50 years ago.
The rest of the day was spent wandering about, absorbing the city and snacking.
At 5 p.m. or 17:00 as they say here, my daughter and I worked out abs/shoulders and upper back plus stretching for my tightening low back and hamstrings. I’m starting to feel the toll of 4+ hours of walking each day.
Early to bed!
