We thought it might be neat to see the supposed “robe of Christ” while in Trier. However, when we arrived we saw that about a bajillion other people had the same idea. We decided to forego the hours-long wait in the rain and just check out the town.
After seeing the Memorial and Trier we headed straight for the Mainz-Kastel Brauhaus. Hayden had picked that restaurant for his special birthday dinner. I really enjoyed introducing my parents to Spargelcremesuppe. I believe it’s the best thing on their menu and hate that it’s seasonal… but I guess that’s what makes it so good. Fresh spargel makes the best Spargelcremesuppe!
(I can’t believe I left my house without my CompactFlash card OR my SD card. I keep a spare SD card in my purse, but had uploaded both cards to my computer that morning, leaving both at home, by accident. Very thankfully, we were able to use Papa’s phone to take pictures, and Hayden had his very own new camera!)
