This is a shot from the plane right before landing in Munich. The bright yellow fields are canola flowers, the seeds are used for oil and Bio-fuel. We had a good flight, they GAVE us wine as well as a hot dinner (It was good too!) then we were lucky enough to sleep for a few hours and then the sun starting coming up and we woke up. It was about 1 am. They gave us hot towels and fed us breakfast and we loanded at 9 am (3 am).
Here is an old cloister that is being renovated. This is where my sister in law goes for her painting class. She asked me to join her.
What a place! I even joined in and painted, I don't think I have made a painting since Kindergarten. I was given everything I needed to paint plus tea and the company of all these amazing women. Everybody was speaking German and I was striving to understand and occasionally I could. I watched them critique a painting, I am not sure what was said but it was lively!
And then there was cake! Oh and whipped cream!
