Again this morning we are up bright and early and ready for another full day of fun.  Shower and dress, pack our bags again and get our bags out into the hallway and down to breakfast.  Then off on the bus to our next wonderful experience.  Today, we start at Rothenberg, Germany, a completely restored walled city.  We have plenty of time to stroll the narrow streets off the main square and browse the wonderful little shops that are loaded with things for the tourists.  Very lacy Porcelain, fine linens, pewter, and even things for my husband, he loves things medieval.

Lunch was a nice sandwich and something to drink and then we got a chance to try something we’d never seen before. They are called “Snowballs”, and they are made from long strips of dough gathered and rolled loosely into a ball about the size of a small baseball. First deep fried and then covered with powdered sugar, cinnamon or other combination of sweet.  Very tasty and good.  I have never seen anything like them before or since.

We had time even to watch the very elaborate clock in the city square come to life.  The windows on each side open and figures come out as if to toast each other with large tankards and watch the clock strike the hour.
