Lauren was away on business for two weeks and managed to get in a few days' vacation in Germany, where she used to live. She took lots of photos, including a few heroic shots of the reconstruction of Berlin. But a couple of domestic shots around Nürnberg (what we'd call Nuremberg) were the ones that I thought worth sharing.
Here in North America we live in houses. In Germany, unless you're in a really small town or are a bazillionaire, you live in an apartment. Which makes for a different (and not all bad) set of trade-offs.
I particularly like the white room with the instruments and big windows.
