...literally translated: The sidewalks of Bad Mergentheim are hinged up every evening.
Which means that the streets are deserted in the evening hours - although the current summer weather is really warm and fabulous.
But Germany is not Italy. Or Spain. Or Greece. Or Turkey.
If there's no event or party in the evening, you have to be at home. You close your shutters. And watch TV.
But fortunately we have Espressobar Italia in the center of my home town. "Real" Italians run the coffee an ice cream shop - and it's open until the last guest is kicked out... ;-)
So: a little "dolce far niente" and Italian feeling of being alive in Central Europe!
