Well….we arrived in Frankfurt about an hour and a half late….but still managed to pack a solid 5 hours of touring in downtown Frankfurt. A couple of us stayed behind with all the carry ons in a day room booked at the hotel while the rest of us jumped on a train and hit the town. We had schnitzels in a lovely old cafe while it drizzled outside….then it cleared up enough and we took a few kilometer walking tour. Jordan and Allison renewed their vows and had a old tradition here of locking a padlock to a bridge and throwing the keys in the river. It was a sentimental moment….we were all in tears….okay well, maybe not quite that emotional….but fun!
The picture you see on the escalator is mere seconds before I almost tumbled down the escalator backwards. If you look close you will see a young man with his feet on the rail….not mentioning names….but it rhymes with Mandrew. Anyway, his foot hit the kill switch for the escalator jolting all of us….close call but we are all fine. So….keep your feet off the rails I guess.
We took a long walk to an old church where we were able to catch the end of a beautiful mass and had a chance to admire the history. We had fun….goofed off…did some photobombing on other tourists…..and had a chance to stretch out before boarding our 10 hour flight to Jo-berg in a few minutes. We are all in good spirits….all very zombie like at the moment….and hoping to get a good overnight sleep on the plane before landing in Jo-Berg in the morning on Monday.
We’ll see you all in Swaziland! Good night from Frankfurt.
