leaving aside superlatives, Freyburg offers an out-of-the-crowd visit to a septentrional wine region with surprising views and very enjoyable wines. Free horses and flower gardens settled in disused old East-Germany-Era army training grounds. Following the river Unstrut to the south you find Naumburg (Saale), old light railways and a surprisingly large cathedral.
Rain season in the Osaka region. Planes, airports, trains, hotels, air conditioning and damp weather, food supplies out of a convenient store on arrival at 10:30PM, more food supplies in the late hour of the day. Days pass dreamlike and nights end well before sunrise in a long wait for the breakfast hour.
