From Regensburg

August 6, 2005

I can’t resist posting this as I sit in an Internet-Cafe in the Wahlenstra├če 6 two streets over from the magnificent Regensburg Cathedral. Being in Regensburg can make one wish he or she were a Catholic. The city is so beautiful and it seems like being Catholic while visiting here could, in a certain sense, give one such a feeling of belonging and community. It is interesting to see so many monks, priests, and nuns about on the streets mixed among so many regular residents and tourists.

If I ever get the chance, I’d like to live in one of the buildings from the Middle Ages in the Kepplerstra├če.

I’ll be in Germany until Aug. 10, so the return comments will still be sparse until then. But thanks to all who have left comments this week.
