We went to the (m)eatery for lunch today. I just wrote a post about it here . We were craving a good burger so we headed to Stuttgart and walked around for a bit. Since we don't live in the city we rarely have reason to come on a Sunday as all stores are closed on Sundays in Germany. It was really nice being able to walk around with few other people on the streets. I grabbed my camera and snagged a few photos on our little walk.
Here's some random photos I took while walking Calwer and Konigstr.
Above: I find the most uninteresting things interesting. Like outdoor escalators. I blame it on the fact that I come from a small town in Alaska where we only had two stop lights growing up (okay we had more but that's how I remember it). The first time I drove on a real highway with multiple lanes and exits I was 18 in Reno and was in immediate panic mode. Oh how times have changed. So, that's my justification for finding incredibly dull things exciting.
In Germany there are many coffee shops, but none of them serve coffee that’s larger than 12 ounces. We only have four within a two hour radius - that means only 4 places where I can order a big coffee. Usually I order two coffees at local places because I know one just isn't enough! They are opening a Starbucks soon across the street from my work, though, and that's going to be dangerous territory especially since the best flavors come out in the fall.
See the 'Evian' below? That was 7 Euro for still water, yikes!
