A free afternoon in Darmstadt

Friday, 22 January 2016

We finished work around 1 o’clock, and it was a sunny day, so I went wandering.

Friend Paul had told me about a 1:4 scale Lok at the Hauptbahnhof, so I went over to have a look. There is a slot where you can insert E0.50 and it actually runs for a while. I was tempted, but the reflections from the plexiglas shell were so distracting that I didn’t think a video would be worthwhile.

I next found myself in a large park associated with the old Schloss. Very nice, although of course sleeping through the winter.

This is a section of the old city wall.

“I assure you, I am better than my reputation!”

Nice place, but I’m ready for home. I hope the knock-on effects of the US east coast weather problems don’t affect my flight to SFO.
