Well, true to form, I’ve been bad about updating my blog. The last three months have been pretty busy and I’ve had a chance to do some traveling, too. And, I had my first visitors!
October continued to be quite busy with official U.S. government visitors, primarily from DC, but also from Berlin. In November, the consulate’s Marine Security Guards held their annual ball and I went to Brussels, Belgium for training. December was a bit slower, as both U.S. and German contacts were on vacation for much of the time.
Christmas was really, really nice. My mom came to visit for about 10 days and we made it to three different Christmas markets, did some sightseeing in and around Frankfurt, and also visited Munich for a couple of days. My aunt also came for a couple of days.
And, on New Years’ weekend, a friend of mine from Ciudad Juarez, who is now posted in Berlin, came to visit and we did some sightseeing in and around Frankfurt.
So, it’s been a busy few months and I’m still very much enjoying my tour here in Frankfurt.
Without further ado, here are some pictures from the last couple of months.
