Pointed Cabbage!

Interesting Deli Products

I was not familiar with these items. I'm told that the one in front, with the vegetables, is also eaten like sliced lunchmeat. Also, I don't know how they got that tractor shape.

O Holy Night, again!

It's time for this again! O Holy Night. He really goes for it.

Christmas Markets

In the weeks leading up to Christmas (i.e. Advent), it seems like every town in Germany has a Christmas market going on. Ulm, of course, is no exception. We checked out the Christmas market in front of the Münster yesterday, and fought our way through the crowds to look at some Christmas ornaments and drink some Glühwein (hot mulled wine). The day before, we braved the pouring rain to go to the Christmas market in Neu-Ulm across the river. The attraction of that market is that it has a medieval theme to it, so the stalls sell medieval clothing and crafts, and instead of Glühwein, you can drink hot mead.
