Ramsau - scanned slide with Bonnie's texture "Blue Me Away"
Bavaria - it took me 33 weeks to finally show a picture taken in Bavaria. Many foreign tourists who come to Germany have two or three places they want to see here: Bavaria, the Mosel and Rhine valley and Berlin. There are certain pictures that people have in mind about Bavaria involving Dirndl and Lederhosen. It must be quite disappointing to see that most Bavarians do not wear Dirndl and Lederhosen. You find women wearing a Dirndl who work in Bavarian restaurants and of course in the Biergarten and at Oktoberfest (which takes place at the end of September). The nice thing about a Dirndl? It's definitely NOT a fashion for slim women! You need "Holz vor der Hütte" (wood in front of the cabin) if you want to wear a Dirndl correctly - now you may figure out what that means! If you don't want to write it in the comments, you can email me here.
This is the church in the small village of Ramsau in the Bavarian Alps in October - many years ago, sometime in the last century (1992?). I was staying in a hotel above the village where I attended a conference. Every morning I went out for my walk, climbed up the hills and took pictures. I remember having the first snow of the season there - as you can still see on that impressive mountain.
