Maria’s Beer Balcony in Germany

This get-together happened on a short-notice visit in July.  In the early afternoon, I found out that Jinsuk was in town, and he first checked  with me to make sure I was still around – take that any which way you like 🙂 .

The last time we had seen each other was in 2009. In the photo below, this was the first time with him as an adult, and so we were able to add beer to our conversation.

My husband’s former college buddy, Mike from Towson, MD, has come to visit us. We are in the middle of a drought, and therefore really do not consume much beer. Ice water is in higher demand.

Tomorrow’s temperature in Frankfurt is supposed to go up to 39.4° C (105 F) in the land where only some big businesses have air-conditioning. Hospitals, schools, and private homes generally do not have A/C.

Our current guest, Lady, enjoys the beer balcony too. I suppose she experiences her own ‘dog days of summer’ during this current heat wave.

Lady, our charge for two weeks until tomorrow. We will miss her.

My friend Martina, whom I had met here in Oberursel at a Halloween get-together about ten years ago, has moved away. But we do reunite about twice a year, and usually finish off our meeting-up on the beer balcony.

You don’t have to be crazy to be my friend. I’ll train you. 🙂

Review on Pizzeria Pomodori in Oberursel

My husband and I have our usual Friday Night date at Pomodori Pizzeria in our neighborhood. It is so convenient, because we can walk there, we always get a table (due to mostly delivery service), and we can bring our own bottle of wine as well.

Here is a small selection of what we have enjoyed over the last few months.

Calamari & Spaghetti aglio e olio

Caesar Salad


I also like their Insalata Greca, Lasagna, or Pizza Margarita.

To see more from them, visit the website Pomodori Pizzeria.

If you are in Oberursel or vicinity, you can also order in English from here: Lieferando Delivery Service
