Minden, Germany

We just got back from a week in Germany with the Werbergs. We went to the town where Hans was born and lived until he was seven. Here is a picture of us all on his street. His old house, that was completely destroyed and rebuilt, is now part of a museum. It is the one with the flag hanging on it.

Hans thanks everyone for being part of the ceremony.

The Landhaus Minderheide, the house we rented for the week.

 

 

We hosted a dinner for all the people who have been so helpful and welcoming to the Werberg family.

 

ALI & LEO GET ENGAGED!

We all join together for the celebratory beer and cigar.

 

German Beer = Good

 

Sam and I got delayed for a day coming back to Kuwait so we took advantage and walked around Hannover a bit. It was basically one big Christmas Village.
