More on Germany

Hello from Germany. Everywhere you look in the countryside, there are windfarms. I also saw a solar farm. The newer windmill bases are more open. I am told this is to provide less wind resistance... Sounds plausable.














Back to the tour... We visited Constantine's throne room, an ancient roman building. You can tell it's Roman by the narrow brick used. The pink building is more recent, but the brick building being obscured is the roman building. See the narrow brick?




The statuary was something else. For example, this may remind you of a strong woman. I think they were on to something.

And for handles, this was a true handle.







I think disney had this to base the dongeon dog on. What do you think? This was the door into the basicillia. Amazing.

I'm still unhappy with the bishop who parked his big gaudy pink palace up against the Roman basilica (Constantine's throne room). Talk about a clash of styles! and the bishop's palace actually covers up a big chunk of the largest Roman building still standing in existence.

Trier is such a wonderful city. I always see something new when I visit.

Minor correction, Mark.

The door handle on the bottom is on the entrance to the Dom, the cathedral. I can understand your confusion. We saw a lot in a short period of time. It's a lot to take in and remember! : ))
