Frankfurt am Main

Last week we were in Frankfurt, Germany for the 2006 World Footbag championships. We met up with Xander & Matt, who David kicks with at Columbia. They did lots of "shredding" together and I explored the city.
It was very hot last week in Frankfurt, so we chose our hotel because 1) it had air conditioning, and 2) it was near the hostel that Xander and Matt were staying in. What we did not know was that it would be in the middle of the (very busy) red light district. Here's the view out our window: The rest of the city was quite nice. It is a big financial center, so there were many sky-scrapers, which felt very different from other European cities.

There were cute old parts of town with cobble stone streets.

On Sunday we celebrated our 1-year wedding anniversary. What a great year it's been!
And, my fabulous husband gave me a beautiful sterling silver with black onyx necklace and matching earrings. :)
