A few weekends ago I went wwwwwwaaaaaaayyyyyyyyy up north to Bremen, Germany to visit a friend. I had a great time but I spent most of it either visiting the country or being drunk. My friend Christine is a true party girl so I followed along and had a good time with her. I met some great people also but also took in the difference between Northern and Southern Germans.
I think the old adage is true that Northern Germans are a bit colder is so true. Not Christine though. Wow, she is great! But, I just got a different vibe being in Bremen than lets say Stuttgart or Muenchen. But, in the end, I had a relaxing and wonderfully fun weekend. I will have to repay Christine in spaids if she ever returns to Canada.

there are a lot of wind machines in Bremen. very flat land
the city square
the city created some 'garden' ideas so that the citizens might use these designs for their own gardens at home
the characters from the "Fearless Four". A very popular story for children in Bremen (and I think Germany)
the Roland statue, Bremen
Bremen has some remarkably tiny streets that the city is known for in the alstatd. quaint!
