Wednesday, May 26, 2010: Make war - No! Make music!
The treasury museum was difficult to persuade us all to go into, but once again, this was amazing. The holy grail made of agate which held the blood of Christ (supposedly), the vestments of the holy fleece knighthood, the crown which incorporated both the bishops hat and a king's crown (church and state) from the 1100's. We have had a good laugh at seeing a splinter of the cradle which Jesus lay in as a baby and a piece of his tunic and a piece of the tablecloth from the Last Supper - did they really use a table cloth? These were highly decorated in special containers.
We needed some light-heartedness after all this seriousness. We took the Ubahn and found the 100 Wasserhouse architecture and had some fun. No straight lines, except for windows is his motto. Trees are to be placed any place and to be respected. This was a man who made a name for himself after giving his speeches in his birthday suite - an interesting marketing technique!
That was enough to fill a day. We are starting to talk about things back home and looking at the June calendar. We also are realizing the wisdom in giving each other some self-time/space after being together 24/7. Till next time...
