    Glad you included a tip on the theatre. A few years ago I saw a great performance there of the opera Salome, by Richard Strauss, on my way back from Wismar. -- Greetings from Frankfurt am Main.

    It is the water and the architecture that makes Schwerin a town overlooked by many on the Rhine cruises and Bavarian castle circuit. All the better for us on the Leipzig tour of Germany;-]

    it seems to me that the city has a kind of nostalgy" style... don't know how to explain rightly... travelogues are wonderful

    I had planned on this my last time over, but was thwarted by bad weather. Looks beautiful, maybe next time.
