Hotel Wenzel – Closed
Im Schiffchen – In the little ship
Allerlei – All Sorts
We didn’t find many fading ads on our recent trip to Germany. We stayed in Köningswinter which used to be hoidy-toidy. Hotel Wenzel is now closed and didn’t look as if it will ever reopen, bar Im Schiffchen (‘in the little ship’) has seen better days. Loved our stay though. Saw good art in Köln and Bonn, ate lots of Bratwurst and Salzkartoffeln. Köngswinter, all in the Hauptstrasse.

Caminhos cruzados – Crossroads
When a heart that is tired of suffering,
lies a heart too tired of suffering,
It is time to think,
That love can suddenly arrive.
When there is someone who longs for someone else
and that someone else does not understand,
Let this new love comes,
even after that is essential cry.
What a fool I was the one who tried in vain to reason
In things of love that no one can explain!
Come, we will both try …
Only a new love can erase the nostalgia.
