Last month we spent a great day in Bamberg with our friend Karo as host. I'm a little late posting pictures of this beautiful World Heritage Site town.

The Christmas market here in Mainz opened on Thanksgiving. The Mainz Christmas Market has been operating since 1788 and is one of the more popular markets. On the weekends and in the evenings it is very crowded, with lots of people shopping and even more hanging out with friends, eating lots of food, and drinking mulled wine.

|At the regular Saturday market, shifted to accommodate the Christmas market|
|Look, the Germans love food on a stick, too!|
|Christmas villages. Wish I had an unlimited budget for shopping and mailing!|
|Outdoor cafe. What I love is that Germans don't stop eating at outdoor cafes in the cold. Restaurants just put a blanket on each chair and they're good to go.|
