A New Tradition

Menu:

tomato/avocado/mozarella salad to begin, then salmon with spinach leaves and roasted vegetables followed by Schokoladeneis mit Himbeeren (and the chocolate wafers one guest so kindly brought along.)

Location:

one exceedingly lovely Altstadt balcony.

Guests:

Piers, Emmy, Zach, Nicholas, Lulu and a surprise guest star in six-year-old Moritz who proved himself a veritable wonder where lighting candles is concerned.

Highlights:

a duet of Strauss’ Blue Danube courtesy of Emmy and I (how appropriate!), ferrying dinner over the bridge on our bicycles in a storm (what dedication),   Emmy’s lullaby singalong, eating outdoors, neighbour spying and uncontrollable laughing.

‘Abendessenpartys’ are the new cool.
