Friends of Padre Steve’s World,
We spent most of the day going back and forth on a regional train from our friends house to the City of Fulda where we visited the magnificent Cathedral, spent time with each other and pretty much stayed disconnected from the world, except for me checking the German Bundesliga soccer scores.
I will write more about some of the history Of the places we have been another time.
We left the house after breakfast and got to Fulda about 12:30. we walked through the town, had lunch, continued to walk and to see the old baroque inner city. I had not been there since 1996 and Judy had never been there. It was a wonderful time with our friends. We left about 5:30 and as the sun set over the beautiful countryside I saw a rainbow from my train window and was able to get a picture of it. We got home about 8:00 and had a light dinner with some wine and spent time with our friends talking about the events of the day and watching the news, while I also caught up on my daily comic strips and skimming the news from home.
Tomorrow we will have breakfast, pack and begin our journey to see our friends in Karlsruhe, while stopping in places where Judy’s mothers family emigrated from first to Russia then to the United States. They are one the way to our friends house.
It will be another day of mostly being disconnected from from the problems of the world, not that there is anything wrong with that.

Have a break Steve and enjoy yourself. It’s important to escape and have fun without feeling guilty about it.
Thanks, much to do when I get home
Yes, but now you’re on a small holiday of sorts.
What happened to you and your wife the last year must have been hard at times.
While I agree that what youdo and write is important a more European work-ethic would be benifical for your physical and emotional health.
Keep the balance is important!
