Re: Where in the World is Gumbo? (11/20/13)

PHeymont ·
It's been a great game, Gumbo fans, and you've now pinned it to the wall. Tuesday morning's post will confirm your correct answer, with more details. It was fun playing with the group. In answer to the question: I've only been to Kaliningrad twice, both times on paper. Most recently, I was reading Tatiana, and was struck by Smith's comments on the rebuilding of churches, partly as vanity projects of the new capitalist class. When I came to the chapter in which Renko is attacked at the...

Re: A Winter Visit to Dresden and Leipzig

Well Dresden and Leipzig pretty nice cities to visit. In Dresden the former Frauenkirche got rebuild which got totally destroyed by the bombing attack if the Second World War.

Leipzig is the City I come from and it has changed a lot after the reunion. The inner city is not that big but it has a lot if history. Sebastian Bach and his famous...

Re: Berlin's Rotes Rathaus: Brick Majesty and Whimsy

HistoryDigger ·
This has been one of my favorites too, but I never knew that a traveler could go inside. Thanks for the details on its history. Every time I've passed it, the doors have been closed. I will try to visit it next month after I sit at Zum Nussbaum—Reiner's favorite Berlin spot—and toast to #travel and #history.
