Da mittlerweile die 4. Woche in Stuttgart zu Ende gegangen ist, habe ich heute einen Auflug zum Kloster Maulbronn gemacht. Dabei bin ich gut gelaunt, da mein Vertrag anscheinend um ein paar Monate verlängert wird und ich dadurch meine Projektwohnung optimal nutzen kann. Dieses Kloster ist Weltkulturerbe und seit dem Beginn meiner erneuten Selbständigkeit im August 2017 habe ich eine ganze Reihe dieser Stätten besucht. Meine Projektorte waren dabei in einem Halbkreis von der Schweiz über Baden Württemberg und weiter zu Hessen und der Grenze zwischen Niedersachsen und Sachsen-Anhalt geographisch optimal verteilt. Hier würde nur noch ein Projekt in Österreich, also beispielsweise in Salzburg oder Wien fehlen. Ich bin einmal gespannt, ob das noch kommt. Nach dem Frühstück bin ich also mit dem Auto in westlicher Richtung nach Maulbronn gefahren und habe auch gut einen Parkplatz ... read more

Everyone met at our hotel for a huge breakfast buffet. Wedding guests filled the hotel and when Reinhard and Elena arrived, they were applauded to loud cheers.

We got up early for a brisk walk to get in some steps. Then it was time to get ready for the wedding. Everyone put on their best clothes and we left in a caravan to drive to the ceremony in Vaihingen an der Enz and Maulbronn. The church wedding was beautiful and Elena looked stunning. We couldn’t understand all the words but it was clear it was all about love. Reinhard is a member of the local volunteer fire brigade and he and Elena exited the church through coils of hose held by his fellow firefighters. They made Reinhard stand under a ladder and lower a bouquet to Elena on a rope wearing big fireman’s gloves. Very cute! Then the firemen served the crowd fruit,cheese, pretzels with butter, Sekt and juice. You KNOW we were ... read more
