Maria’s Beer Balcony in Germany

Here is our first beer balcony visitor for the year! Ksusha from Ukraine stopped by here after concluding her business trip in another part of Europe.

Son Thomas and she had met while both were attending university in Shanghai last year.

One of my friends on Facebook called me the ‘fleiĂźigste Botschafterin, die er kennt’ (the most diligent ambassador he knows of).

I unite nations on the beer balcony. 🙂

Yes, it is visiting season in Germany. Here I am with my best childhood friend from the small village of Hambach in northern Bavaria. She also reminded me that it had been her idea to post photos of all the beer balcony visitors on this blog.

We looked up the date of my first post on this topic – it was August 2013. This is post # 35.

We had just come back from London, and my friend Il Jung and her husband stopped by to see us in Oberursel before heading to London themselves.

Within the past 17 years since she left Oberursel, we had seen each other once, which was on a stopover in Seoul while on my way to Japan in 2012.

We had met back in 1998 through the international school life in Oberursel, when she was only a 9th grader… These days, she is a famous jewelry designer and she’s also wearing one of her creations.

We had a good dinner at the Kronenhof in Bad Homburg, including the obligatory Haxen for Jun Hyuk. The rest of the evening we finished off on the Beer Balcony with many new and old stories to tell, much laughter, and promises to see each other again soon.

Well, I do plan on going to a friend’s wedding in Seoul in a few years’ time.

Beer Balcony Season has started again. My first visitor this summer was Martina, who used to live in our neighborhood. We had met at a camp fire on Halloween night 10 years ago.

And yes, it can be a glass of wine too.

Our visitors are just about to board the InterCity back to Paris after having spent three days with us in Oberursel.

Yes, this is 30 December and we were on the balcony, dressed in sweaters only. This winter has been very mild so far. The only slightly wintry thing you see on my balcony are the dead strawberry plants in the planter.
