Last weekend it snowed in Mannheim. On Friday I heard a rumor of snow expected nearby but was asured that Mannheim was not getting any yet. Saturday morning proved my source wrong. We woke up to find the back yard covered in snow. By Sunday morning the snow was completely gone and it snowed again in the evening. This time Patrick and I were out on the town. We tried to go to a Christmas market that did not exist and ended up at the Starbucks by the market place. I hapily drank my lebkuchen latte and watched the flakes sprinkle down on the palm trees out the window - so weird! Of course, I had to take some photos of snow covered palm trees and the bike that was locked up to one of the plams.
