We’ve arrived in Hannover…and I love it! Everyone down south was saying how it is a boring city but to me, it is a lovely small city, very easy to get around in. We’re staying in a small hotel near the Leibniz Library and I can easily walk to several museums while Dan is busy at the archives. The picture above is the old City Hall...isn't it just a classic! Does your City Hall (new or old) look like that?! :)

There is a beautiful park right in the center of town, the weather has been wonderful and we've had a great time just walking through the park.


Yep, that's me resting on a bench with the City Hall reflected in the lake!

My favorite tree-a weeping willow! There was one growing on the lake near our house when I was growing up.
Posted by PicasaThe lecture went very well…played to a full house :)…and afterwards we went to a lovely dinner.

Just caught up reading all your posts on your trip so far. What a fascinating place. The first photo looks like a place we have here in Asheville, NC called the Biltmore House.

Oh lucky lucky you Miri, I love Germany, lived there for a few years & it's so much fun to go back. With the US $ in bad shape we won't be visiting again for a while though.
Enjoy for me,OK?Hugs

Hannover is a nice city, we have been there often on Fairs. My sister lives near there, too.

What a gorgeous city hall...look at all that patina on its roof. The setting is beautiful and the perfect spot for that huge weeping willow. So peaceful!
