What you've been doing

What a beautiful evening in such a beautiful city! While listening to music, this little piggy also enjoyed the view and the sights in town!

This is a classic Nürnberg view, I am told - the river Pegnitz with the Heilig-Geist-Spital in the background. Add a pig and it becomes unforgettable - he he he! Just kidding - can you believe this building is 500 to almost 700 (the left part) years old!?! Well, maybe I should say, "would be', since it was partly destroyed in WWII and then rebuilt, but I still find it amazing! If I remember correctly it used to be a hospice for the old and sick and is now a nursing home. It has a beautiful inner courtyard that earlier today was packed with people since they had set up a concert stage for the 'Bardentreffen' in there. Now in case you're wondering ... the last concert in there started at 4 and the music was mostly accoustic ... I didn't get a chance to chat with the residents though to hear how they liked having music in their middle for two days in a row ... Hope they enjoyed it, too!

That's it from the 'Bardentreffen', more from Nürnberg later!

Toodaloo, Livi (the hysterical - uhm historical musical pig - whatever ...)
