Plans for new animal shelter revealed

Just over a week ago the modell and plans for the new animal shelter in Oberurselwere revealed at a press conference that also included a tour of the site to show us where the new building will be located.

My article about it appeared in the Oberurseler Woche this week. Click here to read it (in German).

Two more Christmas markets

To finish off our series of visiting Christmas markets in the area, we went to two smaller ones.

The first one was in front of our local supermarket and organised by the book shop there.  There were stands selling waffles, mulled wine, crêpes, and of course books.  But there were also stands from local organisations such as our Kindergarten selling home-made decorations and biscuits.

A local Nikolaus appeared at one point and took the children into the shop for a story.

Our second visit was to the local Tierheim (animal home).  This was a good chance to see inside the home, and although the market itself was somewhat spread out and not that big, we did partake of coffee and mulled wine, as well as buying a Christmas pyramid at the flea market.
