Holmsey visits Leonore!

Freiburg is lovely little city in the very south-west of Germany. We have about 220.000 inhabitants, and about 30.000 of this are students ar our various universities and colleges. Personally, I think Freiburg has a quite unique feeling to it, with the size and infrastructure of a city, but the atmosphere of a little town or even village.

Freiburg has a historic center around our big church, the Freiburger Münster. (Picture courtesy to wikipedia)

At the base of the Münster, there's a big market, with farmers, traders and artists from the whole region. We took Holmsley there on Saturday, and he quite enjoyed one of the famous cheesecakes a baker from a few towns away is selling there. He refused to climb the tower though, mumbled something about hares being made to live close to the ground.

Near Freiburg, there's also the Europapark, one of Europe's biggest amusement parks (I think the area is quite a bit bigger than Disneyland Paris, but it has less vsitors a year, something like that). But after seeing videos of the Bluefire, the infamous looping-roller coaster, Holmsley voted for a quiet day instead.

Freiburg is located right at the foot of the Black Forest, so there where plenty of opportunities for more hare-friendly leisure time. He quite enjoyed visiting the world biggest cuckoo clock (another picture thanks to wikipedia) and the Dorotheenhütte, the last active glassblower hut in the Black Forest.

Holmsley says he really liked it here. He says he hopes to return one day, maybe together with his 'mum'? ;)

Find attached the picture of my finished chart, stitched on 32ct flax linen, using DMC threads (though not all in the called-for colours) and 'Mist' by Nina's Thread.
