Fuck yeah, at last Romania is one of the best countries in the European Union! Oh, wait, it’s about alcohol consumption. Well, it’s true, we do love a glass of beer or wine. And an additional shot of homemade tuica / palinca.
Konstanz, Constance or whatever you call it, is quite a nice place to visit when you have a day to kill and happen to be around the Swiss-German border. Place the kids into the Sea Life at the border of the lake (a big lake, mind you) and enjoy the stroll through the rather crowded streets of the medieval town center. There’s even a tower to climb in the town’s cathedral, from where the whole lake and the narrow streets of the town can be admired - within limits, as not all balconies on the top are open and the ones which are not are swarming with such a luxurious insect life that taking pictures through the windows is basically useless. That is, unless you like spiderwebs and dead flies in macro view. At the base of the tower there’s a terrace restaurant - obviously - but you won’t get a beer picture from there because as soon as we got our orders, a sudden gush of strong wind threw a heavy umbrella right in the middle of our table, shattering everything in sight. Nobody got hurt - surprisingly - but until we cleaned up ourselves it was time to leave so there, here’s a German beer enjoyed at home instead: a barleywine from the Bavarian brewery Crew Republic, by its name X2.1 (X for experimental see) and by the taste yummy like malted chocolate just not overly sweet. I would have liked it with some more fruit or more barrel or more hops or more whatever, just more of something, but even so it was a fully enjoyable drink.
My son, you’re under the spell of that demon-girl. You cannot tell what’s inside a stuffed dumpling by looking at its folds, and a girl’s qualities are not revealed in her face. Beauty and ugliness vanish as soon as you close your eyes.
