Once again, the annual C3B-level square dance in the little village of Fürstenhagen, Germany, is over, and once again, it was a raging success. We had just under 40 attendees, which seems about perfect for this dance — four squares fit perfectly in the hall, and being just barely shy of a fifth square makes people sit out here and there. Some want to sit out occasionally, and some have to... and we all should, to stay a bit fresher, physically and mentally, for the ten sessions of dancing.
The town, which has always been small, seems a bit smaller with the closing of the bakery, one of the two businesses there apart from the inn. And I just noticed this year what the bank's hours are (see photo at right): they're only open on Tuesdays from 2 to 6 p.m.
And now it's back to the real world, after being absent news for five days. It's nice to have the break, and I'm not always sure it's a good thing to come back to being informed — more people being bombed here or there, more storms and disasters and strife (oh my!). But I already have topics for a couple of blog posts, just from the drive home from the airport. So it goes.
For now, though, a few more photos. Real stuff tomorrow. Bis Morgen.
