“Travels to a Different Time”: 16August1973: Sinsheim and Heidelberg, Germany: Lots of Beer and Food at Sinsheim

Up at 9 to bread, honey and coffee for my German friends and lemonade for me. Three hours on the road and we were in Sinsheim where most of them lived. We had a big meal of sausage and potatoes with beer. Germans drink gallons of it! We went to the family brewery for a tour. Most towns in Germany have their own brewery. We then went to Clement’s grandmother’s who insisted upon feeding us another big meal. After that feast off with Clement in the VW to stay with his friends in Heidelberg but they were not in so he drove me to the youth hostel full of Yanks with their Eurail passes and Europe on $5 and $10 a Day. Had a hot shower, read and dozed of. I get along very well with Germans my age.
