|hello, for a minute, New York!|
On the plane I watched "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel," read "The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society," and slept. The food was pretty good, and generally the flights went smoothly. A got a prescription for something to help him tolerate the plane ride with more ease, but didn't end up taking any of it. He watched "Avengers" and slept for 1 hour. As our plane made its way to the gate at the Frankfurt airport, we could see a sort of parkway trail bordering the airfield. There was a group of people standing there, waving to our plane as we rolled by. It was nice.
On the plane I wore leggings, TOMS, the off-white long tee, and black polkadot cardi.
We picked up the rental car, and Audi wagon, and hopped on the Autobahn to find our house. We stayed in a small "suburb" of Bad Camberg called Dombach, about 45 minutes outside of Frankfurt. It isn't really a suburb, in the sense of the American suburb. It has a little church and beautiful houses, population 382, about 7 minutes drive on a winding forest road from Bad Camberg. The house was very nice, with three bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs, kitchen/living/dining on the main floor with a half bath, and a utility room, laundry room, and two bedrooms in the basement. The coolest part of the house? The electric blinds. You control them with switches from inside, and when all the way closed they act as blackout shades. So nice! The worst part? No ventilation system, meaning no AC. It was cool outside at night, and got very hot inside, so we opened the windows. And the mosquitoes came in. I got 8 mosquito bites in Germany, after surviving a week in Jackson and an entire summer in Utah without any. The beds were also funny. Upstairs all the beds were double, and had two twin mattresses in each frame instead of one solid, plus two twin duvets! A loved the separate blankets. I told him I'd consider it at home if it meant choosing a new bedding set. Anyway, the setting of Dombach was really quite idyllic, if a bit far from Frankfurt.
