Trying to find the Sachsenhausen…

26 Sep

So, as I mentioned earlier, my friend Kim has been visiting since Tuesday.  She arrived exactly one week after Joe, Quinn, and I did and she has been a great sport in  helping us explore our new surroundings.  One area I had heard about was the Sachsenhausen-an area along the riverbank near many of the museums etc.  There are also supposed to be a lot of restaurants, and cider houses and it’s an area that is easy to walk around from place to place with lots to do and see in between.  It sounded like a perfect spot in Frankfurt to see for ourselves and take a visitor!  Well….I don’t think we exactly found what we were looking for.  We did land somewhere near the water and we did have a great dinner at an adorable German restaurant.  Somehow these “must-see areas” (implying they cover a large amount of space and are somewhat obvious and easy to find) can be pretty elusive.  I guess this is part of the exploration of a new city.  You don’t always find what you set out looking for….but you do find something new!  Below are a few pictures of our time out that evening.  Again-these pics are all courtesy of Kim, which I think is pretty apparent right away, but still feel should be mentioned.  Enjoy!!

    I think you need to convince your friend Kim to stay for the next couple years to capture your life in pictures! She takes great shots!
