Yeserday after applying at a couple of Irish pubs in the area we had a cup of coffee at a coffee shop that dominik has been wanting to visit for a long time. It's nice for him to have a wife that likes coffee and spending money because now he can go to shops he's been interested in for a while.
It is a lovely shop that used to be a drug store. with wine, newspapers, medicine etc... They have the old shelving with labels. Just gorgeous....
After a wonderful cup we joined some friends Dominic and Judith, on a beautiful and long walk up to "ThingStäte" Thing Site. We stumbled upon some other ruins on the way.
old guys admiring the beautiful city of heidelberg.
The castle of course...
Above and Below are ruins of a monastic dwelling dating back to 400AD. Things are so very old in these parts.

This is "DingStäte" Thing Site it was build in 1933 as a public meeting place for festivities and community events. It was build for Nazi propaganda purposes. People would gather here for "Völkisch" meetings to see theater performances and propaganda presentations. Things were used back to when Norse and Germanic tribes gathered in an outdoor setting. The Nazis used it to legitimize their agendas by building based on something historic.
We went beyond the ThingSite and played some music in some other monastic ruins.
It was a lovely day in this beautiful country
