Kaiserslautern, specifically, a city of about 100,000 near the French border in southwestern Germany.
I only had a day to spend there, visiting my son as I was on my way to Prague and later Brussels with my Pepperdine MBA class. But I had always wanted to visit Germany and enjoyed the one day I had wandering around this mid-sized town. Even on foot we in the central city we visited several churches and cathedrals (despite my conflicts with organized religion per se, I’m still a sucker for unique architecture and stained glass) and there were fountains all over the place, some traditional, some more modern and whimsical.
I can’t wait to get back to Germany and see more of the country. I’m thinking one of those tours where you go over and pick up your new BMW at the factory, drive it around Germany for a couple of weeks…
