I Changed my Profile Set Up!

Like it? I like that it looks more like a travel journal. haha. Ok, a continuation of Bamberg mit Eric! Next up: Nuremberg Zoo with the polar bear cub Flocke! Alright!

This was in the middle of the zoo, but it's the name of the zoo and blah blah blah...

Kangarooooooos!!!!

MONKEY!!!! They were actually climbing around OUTSIDE. I wanted to hold one...

PENGUINS! Just for Paulie, I took pictures of the cute little penguins because he likes penguins.

tehe! Look it 'em swimming!

POLAR BEAR! SWIMMING!

AND BABY FLOCKE! AAAAAHHHHH!!!

The ugliest pig thing I've ever seen...

Alright Paul, your new mission: get one of THESE! And it has to be this big.

Uh, ok...erm, that's all the photos I have of the zoo. We were there all morning, but you couldn't tell. It started raining just as we were leaving...perfect timing! Next up is the Rosengarten and some random pictures of die Dom.

Die Dom from the front. Large...

tehe, silly Eric.

Um...so that teeny person is actually me. Eric took the picture, so you can't see me. But it certainly gives you a good idea of how large the cathedral is...

tehe, more of silly Eric. This was on the door on the way into the Rosengarten.

There we go, walking into the Rosengarten...

Isn't it so pretty??

Hey! Another Gabelmann? No way! hahaha.

Pretty roses...

More pretty roses...

Eric being silly yet again. He's supposed to be pretending to drink tea.

Ah, a pretty walk way through the Rosengarten...

I ponder the life of a rose...

Yay! Mein Bruder und ich!

Ok, this is a ridiculous picture...

Outside the garden...

And an awesome view of die Dom.

Next up, Fussball in Deutschland! yea! We saw two games in Bamberg on it's beg outdoor screen in a little plaza. Sure we had to pay 2euro to get in, but it was TOTALLY worth it. And Kat and Hannes' friends were pretty cool. And Hannes is totally amusing when a soccer game in on...especially if it's Germany. You'll see why in a minute...

Oh, ok, first a view from our porch. It would rain and then be sunny and hot, and then rain...the weather doesn't know what it wants to be in southern Germany...

Um...these used to be Eric's shorts...but now they're mine. And yes, I have worn them. I wore them on the dig in Israel.

Um...I stole this picture from Kat. But I had no idea she ever took this picture. No. Idea. AND no idea that Eric even did that to me. Thanks a lot, Kat, you're supposed to be on MY side, remember?

Ok, finally, the game! Hannes complained that Kat wasn't supportive enough of her country's football team, so she went crazy for the last game. Actually, this was the game that put Germany in the quarter finals.

They were playing Austria. Ok, the white shirts are Germany and the red are Austria. I'm fairly certain that the player in the black shirt is the goalie for Germany...hang on, I can even give you his name...Jens Lahmann. And I only know that because I have almost all the starting players' stickers from the Duplo chocolate bar candies that Eric likes so much.

Eric getting really into the game. Um, yea....it was super funny.

Aw, Katharina und Hannes!

Ok, THIS is how into the game Hannes is. I also stole this picture from Kat. Hannes was actually posing for a really nice picture of him smiling, but he was also watching the game at the same time right past Kat's head, and JUST as she snapped the picture, there was an exciting play and Hannes made this face. You can see his tonsils, I swear...lol.

Kat all decked out and pretending to enjoy the game. hahaha.

video

This is the greatest video ever. It's over a minute long, but it's all the Germans (plus Eric) going crazy that Germany won and was in the quarter finals. It was awesome.

On our way home, I saw this sticker stuck to a lamp post. I had to get a picture of it, I loved it.

hahaha, ok, this says, "Fascism ist not a belief but a crime!" I also had to get a picture of that.

*sigh* And then came the next morning and Eric had to leave. It was chilly and super foggy. Kat's dad was driving him to the train station and I went with to say goodbye.
See how foggy it was? And there's Eric, waiting sadly along the road for his ride...

...looking longingly towards home yet reminiscent for his time spent with his sister in Germany.

And how appropriate that the license plate of this car read: HOME.

Alright, and that is all for the Eric in Bamberg with Alli pictures. Actually, that's the end of my Germany pictures, too. Next post will be of Israel. And now, I head out to the museums...I hope they're not closed already. Oh well if they are, I'll wander about in the lovely weather...maybe draw...
