Dinner was sausages on the grill, rosti (hashed browns) and grilled veggies. Excellent... And I should have taken a picture of the dinner and especially the dessert. The dessert was a Panna Cotta (an Italian custard) surrounded by three fruit purees; blackberry, plum and apple. It was spectacular.
Sorry for my lack of umlauts and accent marks - I haven't figured out how to add those without writing this in Word first...

When we first arrived - almost three weeks ago now, I discovered some gardens by the river where people were sharing a large lot so they could each have a section and grow their own flowers and vegetables. Some of them even had tiny cottages with stoves in them so they could spend the day there. When Vera came for the INQUA meeting, I asked her about the gardens. She said that when people started moving into apartments and didn't have space for their gardens, they would get a space in the country. Here are a few examples of these gardens.
