Spring Market

This is a not a common sight in Wiesbaden downtown on a Sunday. But it was Spring market yesterday and as an exception the shops and stores were allowed to open as well (usually everything is closed on Sundays, except restaurants and bars). And people did not get discouraged by the rain, so there was a lot going on.

marieta - Thanks!

maya - well, I got myself a crepe and a friend of mine whom I met there for coffee got a puppet for her daughter from a kids second hand booth so the three of us ended up playing with it during our coffee session. Was fun :).
