I went with Nicole to watch the Castle burning in Heidelberg. They do this 3 times every summer to remeber when the French destroyed Heidelberg in 1689, 1693 and 1764. We had a great spot on the river. It was cold but amazing to see. I can not wrap my brain around how different it is to be here and not Thailand. Both are cool...but so very different! Thomas had a nice birthday. He had new Lego and spent a good deal of the day playing with it. Tonight he wanted to watch a movie with Juergen. That was OK with Nicole and I. Sometimes it's nice when we can get out just the two of us! We eat dinner together then saw the fire works.
