Spent most of the night transfixed by Google Earth, zooming back to old places I used to live in Germany back in the late 60’s and early 70’s. Brings back a ton of memories.

Fortunately, it was only a block or so away from home, so I could stagger back without getting run over. 🙂 I was, of course, delighted to see the ol’ brewery still standing and it will be the first place I head for, if I make it back to Krefeld!

And Google Earth even led me to a live web cam of the historic marketplace in Schwäbisch Gmünd, where I went to school back in ’71.
