Braunschweig Day 2 & 3

I'm having a great time here in Braunschweig with my friends Jan & Nina. Some fun stuff I've done here in the past 48 hours:
  • Nina showed me the horse-stable/ranch "Weidehof Reitlingstal" where she spends a lot of time. I haven't been near, or on a horse, in ages. Needless to say I had a great time.
  • I did some sight-seing and window shopping downtown. I think I walked in a circle in the "pedestrian" area of town and passed some of the same spots at least three times. Ice cream parlors are everywhere here. So are Döner (Gyro) restaurants.
  • I went to the "Oker Cabana" beach bar with Jan. Kinda' cool, right on the river, and definitely very relaxing...
  • We also hit some other "Kneipen" (bars) in the "Magni" quarter. I DJ'd at one of them ;)
  • Today Jan showed my the "Wilsche Airfield" where he flies glider planes. I even got to sit in one of them...
I have never seen so many VW cars as here. Of course, the world headquarters are only 30 miles away in Wolfsburg.

Speaking of close headquarters... so is Jägermeister. Right across the corner in Wolfenbüttel.

That's the very short version of what I've been up to. Jan and Nina have been such great hosts. Below are some pictures, lots more are on Flickr.

Wedding celebrations kick off tomorrow so I should probably get some sleep. Hope all is well in the US and the rest of the world. I see my boys won the Mercury Prize... Nice.

Hey, Steve, what's up? Germany looks cool. Have fun at the wedding. More photographs of the locals, please. Take care.

Hope your having fun in europe. Make sure meet a lot of decent looking gals. If you could headline a link to my page for all the twin cities shows, that would be great. That way I can get a little more exposure, plus the people that are used to having updates on the shows will still have reviews. Thanks man Hope everthing is going well. -Brody

Looks like you're having a bunch'o'fun. Good for you.

Hope the wedding goes off with only one hitch.

I'm not sure I'm going to make Birdmonster on Monday, but I'm sure they'll be back; they're too good.
