Sunday in my city Bremen, Germany
We have lived here for almost two years now and are still discovering things about our city. As we come to a close to our time here, I find myself talking about the things I will miss. On thing is the many parks and gardens throughout the city. On Saturday we stopped by the "Bible Garden" in the courtyard of the Bremen Cathedral.
There are 120 varieties of flowers and shrubs mentioned in the Bible each labeled with it's name and bible verse where mentioned. Also in the center of garden is a statue of Jacob the patron saint of travelers. Because of the harsh winter we were a little early for the flowers, so another visit in a couple weeks is needed.
Another thing I will miss about our city is the colorful people, I love to people watch and I'm never disappointed. Seems like a lot of European city the local are always in black colors but not here...color makes up for the lack of sunshine. I also love how there are dogs everywhere. They are the most well mannered and trained dogs, most you see are without leashes. Also the fountains and statues situated throughout the city. Last weekend the fountain in the city had been tampered with, the result red foam...for some reason our soccer aka Football team was playing rival Hamburg...perhaps that is why? Not sure!
