At the castle

Since we rented a car for the weekend (to get us to the airport on Monday) we decided to show G-ma the castle. She had a great time and I am so happy she got to see SOMETHING besides the inside of our house the 5 weeks she was here!

Some photos might be a bit blurry because we weren't allowed to use a flash, but I'm sure you'll get over it.

G-ma in the chapel

Close up of the organ, the detail is cool

One of the many ceiling paintings

This is similar to my pajamas

This painting is amazing. You have to keep your eyes in the bull as you walk across the room because his head turns as he follows you!!

More detail on the ceiling

Into the Great Room (or Grand Room...can't remember which)

Another amazing ceiling full of detail

The walls of this room are completely covered in a beautiful and amazingly detailed tapestry. The paintings aren't bad either.

Andreas says he wants a fireplace like this one. You know, in case you want to live in it. It's HUGE.

G-ma, enjoying some ice cream.

All in all it was a good trip. As long as we are mobil, we are venturing into the same town again today to do some shopping AND eat at a Mexican restaurant I found while walking from the castle. Been in this area for 9 months and JUST found out there is a European equivalent to Paradiso here. That's it, I'm staying. Because all I really need is Mexican food to make me happy.
