Yes, we did do the “Sound of Music Bus Tour”.  It was Tracey’s dream since childhood.

Here’s the beer that they served on the tour.  Fairly good beer.  All of the other good pictures of the tour are on Tracey’s camera.

Of course we need the traditional photos from the train.  Unfortunately, the pictures don’t do justice to the actual views.

Visited the Nuremberg court complex where the war trials were held (in Court Room 600).  Very interesting.

Flags of the four countries that managed the process.  Interesting that the US flag has text in German.

Yes, we ate at a Mexican restaurant in Germany.

View from the castle wall in downtown Nuremberg.

Stopped for a beer or two on the way down the hill from the castle.

Visit to the Brandenburg Gate

Yes, that is snow.  It was 24 degrees.  Cold.  We took a cab there from the hotel and wandered around a bit.  A very nice area, but we had a very difficult time finding a restaurant/bar that wasn’t full!

Now if we could just find Kristi’s and Drew’s luggage…
