After our quick stop in Hannover to visit Julian, Dan and I were off to Frankfurt to visit his friend Tim. Yes, that's right, the second German Tim of the trip. Dan was thrilled to get to visit with his friend from a dance intensive they both attended a few years ago. We got an evening tour of the city from Tim and his boyfriend Sydney, and we had a really fun time talking and socializing.
At one point during our walk we came across a protest of Germany supplying tanks to Turkey used against Kurdish fighters. I of course immediately took off to the center of the crowd, to the mild concern of everyone else. It had been a couple months since I had been around any protests, and I really missed documenting them. That wasn't our intent for the evening so I had to move on fairly quickly.
The two evenings we spent in Frankfurt were lovely. What I enjoyed most was our dinner the second night. I got a potato dumpling ball, stuffed with pork, on top of cabbage with gravy. It was delicious. To accompany it we had the traditional Frankfurt apple wine, Apfelwein, which was tart and refreshing. I would happily have either again.
