Along the Roof Tops of Rothenberg,Germany

It’s quite a climb through the narrow spiral staircase that takes one to the top of the City Hall Tower. I kept thinking how can these steps get any narrower and they did. By the time I climbed through what was now a hole to the top, it got pretty queasy. They would only allow a certain number of tourist up on top of the tower at a time, which was a good thing considering how cramped the space was. But wow, what a view. With fresh snow from the night before blanketing the roof tops and countryside in the distance, it was quite breathtaking. With screening all around you, finding a hole to poke your camera through was a challenge. I would definitely say, Rothenburg was one of the more scenic towns on the Romantic Road in Germany. It was snowing the 1st day we arrived, and that for us, made it even more special.

Lazy Days in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico

Daily Photo:

In old San Juan, families come out to sit in the square and watch their kids play, just like they would in a park somewhere. We stayed in a hotel overlooking the square, right in the heart of old San Juan. Most visitors usually end up staying in a resort on the beach, but this trip we wanted to be downtown, closer to the normal coming’s and going’s of the locals. I spent the day pretty much walking the entire town, trying to grab the local scene, the typical sites, and the off-the-beaten path kind of shots.

We don’t feed pigeons in Arizona. Most people treat them like pest here and would just as soon eradicate them. I live in a rare community in Arizona that is surrounded by water, so we have a lot of them hanging out. I won’t  be feeding any pigeons. Neighbors don’t take kind to that. So we hop on a plane and go to Venice or Puerto Rico or somewhere where they are treated like nice pest and through out some bird seed.
