Frankfurt wrapup

Here are a few photos from my 5 days in Frankfurt.

This first photo is something I never believed I would see on a Mercedes Benz…

Look closely at the upper part of the window. I guess it is true that duct tape will fix anything!! By the third day I noticed the tape had been removed…

Here are some shots from the city…

Frankfurt sits on the Main river.

Interesting trees, not sure why they have been cut back… The old Opera House…

There is a beautiful Catholic church in the heart of the city, near the river. The sign was inside the church. I arrived there around 12:30 p.m. and there was a service in progress. Now, admittedly, I can imagine that they don’t appreciate visitors coming in during their service and taking pictures, however, the sign startled me. I cannot imagine ever putting up a sign that says “service in progress, no visitors please.”

My last photo is funny to me. In 2004, I visited friends that used to live in Frankfurt. A mutual friend flew over to spend time with us over Thanksgiving. James and I laughed so hard at this sign.

  1. Joe,

    The duct tape was probably there to hold the new windshield in place – commonly done here also when installing a windshield. As for the Ausfahrt ….. not much I can add there.

  2. Mark,
    I learned something through you about the duct tape. I had no idea that DT was used to hold the glass in place…

    Thanks!
