We are winding down our tour in Europe much to my chagrin. Today, I decided to go downtown to the local Wienachtsmarkt. Christmas markets are a big deal in Europe. They ring in the holiday season and really give the atmosphere a festive touch. I browsed the market stalls at a leisurely pace while I searched for the perfect stall to get a gluhwein. See, with gluhwein, the cup is part of the attraction. The gluhwein is served in a ceramic mug or glass stein. It is popular to collect them at different markets. I found the perfect mug today! Brown ceramic in a small bowl shape. After that, I had roasted fish on a stick. It was perfection.
