From my emails:
"It was while walking along this street (Neuhauser Strasse) that I was reminded of the humorous signs that I had come across. There was a "Moll" and then "Schmuck" (pic 2), an odd name for a store selling sparkling stones for women, then again it probably referred to the male of the species buying them.
I'd just checked out a couple of churches and was thus in the mood upon resuming my walk when the black-and-white sign shone through the rain.
"Christ" - I had found him at last. I approached the door through the precipitation; would he recognize me, or me him? No, in fact it is merely the name of a chain of jewellry stores. I know this because there was another one two blocks further down on the opposite side.
How disappointing. I could have been on the brink of eternity."
