The 1st collage of pictures is of downtown Frankfurt, Germany. Two things we've never seen, two story Apple store and Chiquita banana store. Mercedes taxi's (only in germany) and a group from missionary Keith Gandy's church in Aschaffenburg, Germany that we had dinner with and great fellowship with our first night here.

The 2nd collage is our tour of the Gutenberg Museum. The Gutenberg Bible (also known as the 42-line Bible, the Mazarin Bible or the B42) was one of the first books printed in Europe. It was printed by Johannes Gutenberg, in Mainz, Germany in the 1450s. Although it was not Gutenberg's first work, it was his major achievement, and has iconic status in the West as the book that marks the start of the "Gutenberg Revolution" and the age of the printed book.

The 3rd collage of pictures is of The Mainzen Dom, what it is called, but it is a large catholic church in the town of Mainz.

The 4th collage of pictures: drawing of church on marble in the courtyard, statue on Gutenberg museum, buildings in the square by the church, statue in the courtyard, where we ate our first German meal today, adecco building (for CT), airport, top of train station which Oskar Schindler (Schindler's List) lived next to at one time.

We will be traveling to Austria on Wednesday to tour the Dachu Concentration Camp and drive on the Autobahn! Hope to have more pictures up soon.
