GORLITZ, GERMANY – – One Last Posting….

I have been back home now for a bit,  sorting  through approximately 1500 ” keeper”  photos that I took so I can  relive  the wonderful sights  I enjoyed.   Here are just a few  more photos of  the  unique, beautiful,   town  of Gorlitz that I wanted to share….

Gorlitz Old Town Hall

This building on the right became the Town Hall in 1350. The tower has 2 clocks, the top clock measures the day, month and moon phase, the bottom clock  tells the time of day and has  a warrior’s head on it.  His tongue  used to stick out on the hour, but now he can only open his mouth.

The golden lion above the clocks  supposedly whistles at particular moon phases.

The main entrance of the Town Hall has a balcony where public announcements were made.

While exploring, I noticed this little cutie talking  to the  statue who  is holding a bowl of books.

Many doorways were so spectacular  and inquisitive.  Double  clicking  on the photo  will show you better  what I mean.

Gorlitz playground

Lastly, what is a surviving  medieval town  worth   if it does not have the playground to match?

Stay tuned  – the very last posting from my Germany/Poland adventure follows….

    I had forgotten how beautiful Germany is. Not fond of their superior attitude, but admire their love of beauty. I especially like the photo of the little girl. My favorite photos are ones that I have taken of local people in various places, but realize that it could get me in trouble from time to time. In The Netherlands, I took a photo of some religious Dutch people dressed in native costume who were walking home from church. They were not pleased. They must think similarly to the Amish that graven images are evil or that photos take their souls?? :o)

    Do you know about what time Vance is coming to fix some of the cracks?
