    actually this is a photographic check to see if these two images even come out or are so puny you cannot see them.

    Lorenz Kirche era 1911 before it was almost blown away during the bombings-1945 where Nürnberg suffered some 90% destruction of it's Altstadt.

    Actually that part of Nurnberg still looks that way today. It was all rebuilt after the war. I drive past that tower and wall every Sunday on my way to dance lessons with my wife. I will try and park my car at the Bahnhof on Sunday and take some pictures to compare. Can not make a promise though du to the fact that the Christmas markets are going on traffic is bitch and so is parking.

    Just another side note on the other side of that wall and tower is now the area we call "The Wall" which is the red light district.

    Just for comparison until I take some pictures myself of this beautiful German city on Sunday here is some that I pulled off the internet. I feel really fortunate living so close to Nurnberg. It has so much history and is very beautiful. The wonderful thing about Nurnberg is the fact that they have blended the old part of town and the new part of town. It has the modern buildings as well as the old medieval style buildings it is very beautiful.

    Yes for the fun of it, me and my wife take dance lessons. We learned how to Wiener Walser, Foxtrot, Salsa, Jive, Tango, Cha Cha Cha, Rumba, and are currently working on the Paso Dubla (I probably spelled the name wrong but I like to call it the Zoro Dance [you know from the move Zoro where he dances with C.Z. Jones]). After our first course which was 9 weeks long, we enjoyed it so much and had so much fun together we signed up for another and now we are on our 4th course.

    Well Bad news guys. I will not make it to Nurnberg today. The weather is really bad and the roads are worse. Me and my wife are not going to take a chance and wreck our Jeep on the way to Nurnberg or back. The temps are very freezing and the roads are icy. Vis sucks also with the blowing snow.

    I do live only a 30 minute drive from Nurnberg though so I will get there soon and get the pictures, I promise.

    Sounds like a typical Nova Scotia winter. Hence the reason why I hate winter so.
    Those are some nice pics there guys. I've never been to southern Germany.
