X is for Xanten…

  1. Great shots Martin and I am sure it is as lovely now as i looks to have been then though to tell you the truth, twenty years ago doesn’t seem so long ago!

  2. Xanten! OMG — we were there, with a dear German friend, oh at least then, maybe when you were there?
    Saw the big Roman archaological site, and a small church with whimsical brass sculptures on the altar table, etc. of forest creatures, enchanting. I especially loved the hedgehog.

      1. Hi Tony – I understand your angst… Don’t you just love recalcitrant keyboards 😉 I wouldn’t worry too much about typo’s mate – everyone makes them. Your comments are always welcome with or without them 🙂

        I too have been busy and find myself playing catch-up. The good thing is that I’ve been spending more time that is free on the Radio and that should give me material for Y 😉
