Sophie with Peter Emmert
Saturday we had the privilege to drive to Regensburg, a short trip from our temporary home in Munich, to visit an ex-business colleague and friend, Peter Emmert, and to tour Regensburg. Peter was the president of the Siemens European Lighting company in Traunreut, Germany, while I worked there as CFO for 4 years. We had not seen each other for 17 years, and had a great visit and a wonderful tour of this old Roman city.
Regensburg sits on the Danube river and as many cities in Germany, has many beautiful churches and public places. The highlight for me was visiting the 2000 year old castle, Castra Regina, which was built in 179AD by Marcus Aurelius. This was during the time the apostle Paul was walking the earth. We Americans simply cannot imagine things so old as this.
A wonderful day.
I have included a few pictures of the city and one of Peter and Sophie during our Bier Garten lunch.
