I am having a very lovely fall weekend in Haindling, a small village near Regensburg. We are staying with our friends the Thuns, who have an incredible house, and enjoying the autumnal foliage. Last night we saw David Thun in a production of Ionesco’s Rhinoceros in Straubing. This morning Honza and I went on a walk in the village. We picked lots of delish apples and found some ponies in a field, so we fed them some apples too and patted their soft noses. We also got to go into the local pub, which is not actually a pub but a Society so that the members do not have to abide by legal pub ordinances. It is in the Alteschmiede (old blacksmith). We went inside the church and walked around it, and then after lunch, Honza and the boys played soccer and following this we went inside to play Fußball-kicker-foosball depending on what nationality one might be. Sadly, Honza and I lost miserably to Constantin Thun, who is fifteen. Oy.
Pictures to come! Oh, and happy Halloween for those Americans out there.
p.s. Honza would like me to mention he is sore from playing soccer. Very sore. So sore, that he mentions it about every five minutes or so, and then I get nervous if six minutes go by and it has not yet been mentioned.
p.p.s Honza is a little obsessive compulsive. He made me edit this entry twice.
