"One day it occurred to me that it had been many years since the world had been afforded the spectacle of a man adventurous enough to undertake a journey through Germany on foot. After much thought, I decided that I was a person fitted to furnish to mankind this spectacle. So I determined to do it. This was in March, 1878." Mark Twain, A Tramp Abroad


The Natives are Getting Restless

On one of our visits to the Altstadt (old part of the city) we were met with a very strange scene--bedsheets hanging from windows and strung across the street with messages written on them.

"We want to SLEEP!"


"We also need sleep!"

Some nightshirts for added emphasis.
I guess this is a problem too...
We found this same scene throughout the entire city. Apparently the native inhabitants were protesting against the excessive partying of the people down below--perhaps having something to do with the students returning to the university for the school year. I think they got their point across.

I understand their frustration. I too am awakened in the middle of the night by a noisy person who doesn't pee in the toilet.
But don't these people choose to live in this part of town, above the popular bars and restaurants???
