Been in Germany for about 6 or so hours after arriving just after sunrise this morning. Old housemate Phillipp picked us up and took us to his house in the foothills of Kronberg (20km north of Frankfurt.) Lauren and I will be staying here for the next week. Still pretty jet lagged, slept off a little but today will be restricted to short walks around the village checking out some of the surrounding castles and landmarks. Weather? It's been a chilly morning, below 10 C ... now a light drizzle is coming down. I can't get over how bright the sky is here.
