The Old Synagogue. We opted not to go in, partly due to the price… maybe next trip!

How awesome is the logo and name for this restaurant? We opted not to eat there because it was a tad pricey…. can you tell we were on a bit of a budget this time?

Can you tell I’m SUPER excited? This thing was the size of a Euro burger from McD’s in Germany!! Also it was pretty tasty 😉

A sampling of the art we saw Sunday — Top row is from the Convent of St. Agnes. Bottom is from the National Gallery.
I loved simply walking around the city and looking out at all the architecture.  This shot totally looks like something out of a Wes Anderson film, no?

The salad we picked up from the grocery store Sunday evening was less than spectacular… also look at the REALLY weird forks we had to eat it with!

Castle! I’m pretty sure this one is still in use as the windows looked new.
