Here we are with part two of our area tour. Looking back to the west from our house, you see the old (200+ years?) church in the distance behind the trees. It is an evangelical Lutheran Church, and their community center is across the street from our house. Our house is the yellow one on the left, closest to the camera, and we have met half of the other 8 families that live along our street now in these other houses you see.
Turning back to the east, we now see the corner we showed you last time, with the bakery and the döner stand.
Across the street from that corner to the left, we have this bottle shop. It sells mostly alcohol, but soda and water too. The lady that runs it is very friendly. We usually buy a couple cokes from her every few days.
Further east down our street (Alte Meissner Landstrasse) we see the bus stop. Two bus lines come through this stop, and one continues right past our front door. Hundreds of people pass our house every day on their way downtown or back home.
At the bus stop, there is this little park. People from all over the neighborhood come to this park to relax or walk their dog. It cuts through the block to Meissner Strasse, a main street headed to the center of town.
These final two images are from the park. The first is looking south across our street towards another street, Gottfried-Keller. We will show you more of it later. The second is from the other side of the park looking east down Meissner Strasse towards downtown.
