Postcards from Dusseldorf

Just back from Dusseldorf in Germany

(We didn’t go to Brussels in the end).

After work, we walked along the Rhine,

Enjoying dramatic skies

And the ornamental trees along the river bank.

Spring was in full swing:

Isn’t this magnolia in full bloom just gorgeous!

    • There was a terrorist attack in the actual airport a week ago and not all flights are flying to Brussels yet because of the bombs.
