A trip to East Frisia

Today was a perfect day in most ways that I can think of.

Lívia and me went to the city of Leer in East Frisia in order to do some paper work. We were supposed to go with the train the whole way but the German train failed and we were picked up by a Taxi - must be an expensive day for Die Bahn :P but we didn't mind as we got to Leer even earlier.

Leer was perfect... very beautiful, quiet and still there was a lot to do. We both really had the feeling that we were on vacation and that is not a bad feeling at all ;) While we were in Leer in also had the chance to taste the traditional East Frisian Tea with Kluntjes un Room. VERY NICE INDEED! We also met the sea mermin (Seewievke) and we also saw that Leer has some relations to Brasil :)

We ended up buying some nice tea there as well as the tea we tasted was great and the owner of the store was extremely nice and welcoming! Waouw, what a difference from Bavaria.. actually, all people we had contact with (asked for the way, etc) were very kind and made us feel very welcome.

Today was extremely warm and it was the only thing that wasn't optimal ... But think about it, this time of the year it could be raining and storming - so I guess that we shouldn't complain at all :) though we were almost dying from the heat on the way home...
