Oh, and I don't make the students call me Professor Roth. Mrs. Roth, Ma'am, or any other way is fine with me. :)

Enjoying the afternoon at a Sidwalk Eis Cafe. That's an Ice Cream Cafe. Love them!!
The most elaborate street performer I think I have ever seen in my life! He is a fountain with working water!!Fresh fruit and veggies. Germany is known for it's White Asparagus, or "Spargel", so we got some as well as some blood oranges and tomatoes. We're going to try to cook the asparagus on the grill tomorrow.

The Prince Edward's Theater where we went to see the musical Jersey Boys! Told the story of the music group Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons. AMAZING!!! I would totally go see it again!!
Big Ben and Parliament with Westminster Abbey in the background. We tried to go in Westminster Abbey since it was closed the last time we came to London, and wouldn't you know it was closed AGAIN. Someday...
Our group on the London Eye. We took a Champagne Flight. Lots of fun! We got to skip the que and then also had much fewer people on our flight since it was supposed to be more private.
Can't wait to go back again!!

We are experiencing another fun little German tradition, The Clackers. Over Easter, between Good Friday and Easter morning the church bells do not ring as an act of mourning Jesus' crucification. So intsead the town's children walk around and clack their nosie makers when the bells should be ringing. Mainly they come around at 6:30am, noon, and 6:30 pm. Such a neat tradition!
