Vacation 2010 Day 7: Nuremberg

Next day in Nuremberg was blessed with the same fine weather as the day before, so I set off early to explore the parts of the old town I hadn't visited the afternoon before.

I headed up to the castle (or castles) that overlook the old town. Though Nuremberg had been virtually destroyed by bombing during the war I was impressed with how the old town had been restored back to its former glory.

It was also nice to be around so many stone buildings.

At lunchtime I met up with some friends and they drove me out of town into the countryside.

Since living in Japan I have come to appreciate the countryside of Europe......

That night I went to my friends's bands last concert of their European tour.

I decided to walk from the concert hall back into the city center to catch an early morning train.

I misunderstood directions I was given and spent several hours wandering around in the suburbs.....
