Last night Gaby made a delicious beef tagine in the Moroccan style. She’s such a great cook. Really nailed the spices.
Today we bid farewell to the Birouk family and hit the road south.
About 30 minutes drive found us in Maulbronn and it’s UNESCO world heritage abby, Romanesque from the early 12th century. The site is well used by the town with the local government housed in the restored medieval buildings. There were only a handful of tourists in the area, a far cry from Heidelberg.
From there it was on to Tübingen and the Hotel Am Schloss.
Although somewhat touristed the town has a totally different vibe. With 20,000 students in a town of 80,000 there is a fresh, up beat feeling. We walked the streets of medieval buildings,
had a drink and a bite in the square by one of the many churches,
looked in a few shops for souvenirs, pondered the biggest squash I’ve ever seen
and finished it off with a great vegetarian dinner in the restaurant at our hotel.
Somehow the Germans make even vegan dishes somewhat heavy. Never the less it was delicious. The local rye bread was exceptional.
Now it’s off to bed dear reader. More adventures to follow.
