What you've been doing

After lunch and a stop at grandma's house Andrea and I met with her friend Sabine who introduced us to the "Korbmarkt" (basket market) in Lichtenfels. Lichtenfels is about an hour's drive north of Erlangen and is famous for its basketmakers. The "Korbmarkt" takes place once a year, on the weekend of the 3rd Sunday in September and besides traditional baskets also showcases modern furniture and art objects. They also have a "Korbstadtkönigin" (basket town queen) but I only found out about it now, we didn't see her when we were there.

Toodaloo, Livi
