@Walter Hinteler,
well , what's 140 km between friends ? Wink

btw the Koestritz label came up under google images for kulmbach Confused Drunk

Quote:
One of the most famous drinkers of Köstritzer Schwarzbier was Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, who sustained himself on black beer from Köstritz when he was unable to eat during a period of illness.




( my dad used to say : " beer is liquid bread and much easier to digest ! " .

i drink to that !... Wink ... )

Walter and team

Thanks for your good wishes. I'm home now - a bit sore and sorry.

There are some lovely looking towns in Europe - each pic makes me want to go again and again.

Osso - that Oslo pic was interesting - I'm a Jo Nesbo / Harry Hole fan.

@margo,
I knew I liked ya, Margo..

I'm not precisely sure that's the building but Hole did live at Sofie's Gate.. and that's at least the neighborhood.

I've only read two of Nesbo's (Redbreast and Snowman) - of course I want to read them all. Even Katy liked Snowman - she gnawed the book cover.
