Sycamores along the river in Frankfurt
Bo, Georgia and Susan checking out the local produce
Tuesday Susan and Bo, Georgia’s wonderful family drove us to Frankfurt. We would all be flying out the next morning. We headed into downtown Frankfurt that evening. Parked near the downtown, we navigated our way to the river passing through street markets and the red light district. The city is an interesting mixture of new and old architecture, many of the older buildings being destroyed during the war. There are tons of sculptures and art throughout the city. Along the water is a botanical garden, paths lined with sycamores and many people out kayaking, rowing and walking. I think the evening is the best time to see a new city. There’s something about the lighting and transition from day to evening life that gives them a really neat atmosphere.
