On the third day we stayed relatively close to Mandy and Colin’s house. We drove (in Colin’s new BMW) to a town called Neuleiningen and had lunch. We ate outside, and the view was picturesque. And the meal was delicious.
After lunch we drove to the Rhine River, hoping to take a cruise and see the castles on the hillside. We arrived a little too late, so we decided to just drive along the river. It is really hard to see casles when you are whizzing by them at 100 mph. (Colin was a little excited about his new car.) However we did get an close-up view of a bee on the windshield.
Look close – you can see the stripes. And the guts flying out of it. Tomorrow – Rome!
