  12. Very nicely composed, yes. Colours and sharpness are amazing for a cell phone (yes yes I have said this before, I know ...)

    Martina: You will notice I did not venture very far into Pälzer territory. However, I managed to return unscathed and, perhaps, I might dare to go back. The restaurant in the rebuilt monastery might tempt me.
