            1. I loved Hamburg – it is very similar to a British city. That is for the Netherlands too, very dimilar, but refershingly European!
              No, Germany is about as far east as I have been, even then only as far as the Rhein. West of that, I know quite well, but not east. Having said that I have had isolated holidays in Italy and in Greece.

              1. I had huge travel plans for my tenure here, to include London, Normandy, and Paris. Maybe even Spain. Might still get a chance to visit a few, I suppose. Headed back to Wash. DC this upcoming August, but I’d like to teach abroad again soon.

                1. When I worked in the USA, Wash, DC was the very first place. Chantilly, Va, by Dulles. But I was’nt enamoured by the burb lifestyle. I much preferred it when the company settled in NYC.All a lifetime ago…

                  1. It’s not my favorite, either. Although I was living in Leesburg, which has a bit of its own charm. Did you visit there? I loved going to NYC on the weekends. I would take the Friday bus after work and return on Sundays. Always thought about renting something in the city and writing one summer, but it hasn’t happened, yet.

                    1. Leesburg? No, that’s a new name to me. Actually we visited very little – we went to DC itself and saw the sights – it was scary because a block in the wrong direction and you were in the middle of the ghetto. We visited Arlington and I remember going to an enormous mall at (?) Chevvy Chase. That place name stuck in my head for obvious reasons. But this was all mid-nineties.
                      It was so backward that I remember going into a burger restaurant and asking what they had for vegetarians, and they replied “green salad”.

                    2. Yeah, not much vegetarian here in Germany either. Quite the meat and potato place. Won’t be looking forward to the dangers of D.C. but I like living out by the Potomac, and biking the river. There is beauty there……anywhere, I guess, if you look for it.

                    3. I love biking. It is truly tops here! So many trails and easy to get to many lakes with a good 40 min bike each way. I write a lot of poems on my bike trips. I’ve posted a few here under baubles, but I have many more.

                    4. Yes, I’ve been metricsized…..I can do other euro tricks to like convert F’ to C’ 😉 still working on grams and pounds, though. Impressive cycling. I bike everyday, but there’s more leisure than distance most days.
                      I’ve been writing poetry a long time, so there may be a few shelves of journals and lots of word docs shoved into poetry folders on my computer. Most days I write a poem and I always write a haiku. 😉

                    5. Haven’t had that for years! Once worked with a South African, who introduced me to it. I unce used to stockpile a tea I could only get if France. It was a black tea, but blended. Had rose, caramel in it iirc. We have lots of tea here but mostly just ordinary.

                    6. I did find a funny the other day, though. This app I am writing, I wanted to pre-load it with medicines approved by the FDA (among others). Even the USA typically measures its medicine doses in milligrams! I don’t know, the nonsense I pick up…

                    7. Well, I walked today to the market as I popped a tire yesterday—not exactly sure how. New tire to be in today. I notice more walking, the first blooms here hiding like Easter eggs. It’s warm today which means I can write on the balcony this evening. 🙂
