Highlight of the week - I fell in love with Anja, soon to be five years old, at the camping place in St.Arnual near Saarbrücken. Very mature for her age, Anja was a delightful young lady who loved to play memory - so we did.
11 km from Bitsche, a city in France with a monumental fortress. Since I visited the fortress a few years ago, I decided to continue on to Saarbrücken.

Ihn is a small town in the middle of nowhere. It means “him.” I wonder if there is a town called “her” somewhere.
A local resident here told me that this area is the “Arsch der Erde” (asshole of the earth) but it isn’t true. I’ve seen much less desirable places during my lifetime.
Die Geschwister von diesem Kerl haben mich die ganze Nacht immer wieder geweckt.
The brothers and sisters of this little guy kept me awake half the night! They were making a lot of grunting noises while looking for food near my tent.

Saarschleife - Loop in the Saar River Ohrscholz - Saarschleife
Das habe ich vor 20 Jahren gesehen. Immer noch super schön.
I saw this loop in the Saar river 20 years ago. It is still impressive.
It was a special treat as this barge loaded with coal came chugging through the loop.
