Goodbye, Europe

Monday was our last day in Europe. When we woke up, we gave Diana a call and went to meet up with her to run a few last-minute errands. We went grocery shopping – stocking up on German chocolate and candy. Then Diana took us to a “rindswurst” place by her house, which she said is always crowded with people (which it was even when we went, even though it’s just a small butcher shop outside the main part of the city – must be very good food.) We had a cup of broth soup, a piece of bread, and a beef sausage with mustard. The food was great – a very nice last meal before heading to the airport.

Diana came back with us to the hotel to hang out and help us pack, and joined us on the trip to the airport. We said our goodbyes and headed back to the USA.

Thanks to the magic of time zones, we were back in DC three hours after we’d left Frankfurt – just in time to set down our stuff and go to bed.
