GAWA Day #50: Rudesheim and Castles on the Rhine

Rudesheim has a population of 10,000, and their music box museum, Siegfried's Mechanisches Musikkabinett, is their big attraction.  Here is Eula in front of one:


The group had a traditional pork weiner schnitzel lunch with music at Rudesheimer Schloss.  Our table of six drank two and a half bottles of white wine, but only three of us did the imbibing.  Here are Paul and Dotty from North Carolina:



Then we went up the cable car to the top of the mountain.  Here, Lareen and Lesley, and you can just about see the MS Espirit above Lesley's left elbow:








Our ship left Rudisheim and many of us went up to the sun deck to float by a series of castles, and listened to the story of each.  It was a tad foggy.  Or maybe the lens of my camera showed some condensation.  Twenty minutes into this exercise, as castles are not high on my interest list, the cold became as excruciating as the prolonged tours through the many palaces and museums, that I went back to my room to finish this blog.

Tonight we stop in Koblenz, then go on to Koln (Cologne).



It's not too late for you to tune in on the ether to listen to the final day of the workshop on Co-Creating Heaven on Earth.  Just click on the title.  Wouldn't you rather be part of the solution than merely carp on the terrible state of the present and only dream about a progressive future?

Note that the first session today begins at Noon eastern time or 7AM in Hawaii:
