  3. It has been 15 years since I went to Bonn, former capital of Western Germany. It was a business trip so I didn't get to see much of the city, I enjoy your lovely pictures all the more!

  5. Now this brings back memories ! That's where I lived before moving to Brussels, went to school and had my friends !
    At that time you even could swim in the Rhine !

  6. There is something special about cities on big rivers and Bonn is no exception. I like your shot of the playful fountain with the children statues on the cobblestone street. Saw something similar in Gengenbach, although there the kids were not in a fountain. Nice!

  7. I think I've said before that you are very fortunate to be able to travel and visit so many wonderful cities like Bonn.

    Thank you for sharing these journeys with us through your wonderful photography.

    I thought the word, “bonn,” might have the meaning of “good” in German. But so far as I can tell “bonn” refers only to the city.

    Shows how much I know!

    It's interesting that so many great composers, such as Beethoven, came from Germany!

  9. Hello Leia and Cezar! I love the shot with the fountain, the curves of the building are wonderful and those cobblestones make great patterns.

    My youngest son would be in heaven as he plays the piano. Stop by Friday for a photo of him in action 🙂

  10. Never spent much time in Bonn, even though it was only a couple hour drive, but I always remember the tall steeples we'd see when we drove past it. Great shots. Thanks for the memories.

  11. I was supposed to pass Bonn on a river cruise a couple of weeks ago, but the water levels were too low so we moved by bus instead and skipped Bonn. Disappointing.

  12. Just to complete a comment above: Bon(n)a was a celtic name for village. You find … bon in many city names. So, this was obviously THE village! 🙂

    I guess you are really longing now for your piano! 🙂
