While I’m exploring a number of German cities in the Mittelrhein region, I’m in Worms during opening week of the Christmas markets. Despite the rainy weather in Worms, people have filtered into the central Christmas market. Near a big Glühwein stand cluster a group of people, their hands holding precious mulled wine.
I get a few blank looks, but I’m used to that. Once I begin speaking German (or some version of passable Denglisch), I know what I’m getting when I purchase a Glühwein and I have to pay an extra “Pfand” (deposit) on the mug. Fully warmed by the hit of hot smooth alcohol, I return the mug to the same stand; to the young woman behind the counter, I say “Zurück, bitte” for my deposit back.
I made the photos above on 21 November 2015 with the Canon EOS6D and EF 24-105 L zoom-lens. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotopress at fotoeins.com as http://wp.me/p1BIdT-7vr.
