After the dentist we made a trip to a museum - it took us longer than expected because Opa was having some troubles with the TomTom GPS. But luckily this day I got to spend a lot of time on the Autobahn!!! This museum is at a location where the Romans battled the German tribes, including the Cimbri and Teutoni. (Opa corrects me at this point, and makes sure I let you all know that the German tribes battled the Romans, and not the other way around
I was hungry after looking over all of these artifacts, so we decided to search out pommes (fries!). We found this little diner place called Charleys Imbiss. I ordered pommes and chicken nuggets. They tasted fabulous. Honest, fries don't usually taste like that. The ketchup was even more tomatoey and flavorful and the nuggets came with curry sauce! So neat. We also bought some still water (most of what they drink is sparkling mineral water so you have to ask specifically for still). It was evian water in glass bottles. And to top it off, he gave us delicate crystal glasses to drink it with. Fanciest diner ever.
After the museum and the awesome pommes and glass water bottles we took a long trip out to the palace at Buckeburg. The first look at this palace took my breath away, the architecture, and all the grandeur of this palace. It is still owned by the original family who live in a separate wing of the palace. My personal favorite was the grand ballroom with pink marble decorating the entire hall. It was fantastic! The golden hall and the chapel were also very beautiful and ornate
So the rest of the day was basically a write off for me. My allergies flared up pretty bad and I had a bit of a stomach ache so I slept. I woke up briefly to go to an ear doctor with Opa, Oma, and Chris, and then we went to check out the train station and found the platform where we will be departing from on Saturday morning. We returned to the house and I slept some more.
I awoke briefly again here to write something down from today. I also ate a few French cookies. Oma Marlies made some bread with chicken on it for me. It was also fabulous.
Tomorrow we are essentially having a 'chill' day. I will keep you posted.
