hemingway, kirschtorte and cuckoo clocks

schonach cuckoo clockA sunny day out in the country yesterday – German Blackforest country. Of-course Schwarzwalder Kirschtorte (Blackforest Gateau) was eaten (merely okay) and many cuckoo clocks were seen. To the left is the ex-largest cuckoo clock in the world – well in Schonach Germany anyway. The cuckoo weighs in at 20 kilos – but as you will note from the photo, we just missed it! Next onto Triberg with Germany’s highest waterfall – unfortunately the paths were closed off for saftey reasons – but for some unknown reason. I could only take a picture of the lower part of the falls and a plaque to Ernest Hemingway who (it says) visited in 1922.
