An evenining by the Necker
I was in Tübingen tonight, for a lazy evening with friends, a pipe, and some wine. We thought we’d trot down to the river Necker for a quiet evening ...
But somehow we’d forgotten that Germany were playing the opening game of the World Cup tonight, and our appointment by the river bank coincided with the end of the game!
But what a sight met us! Crowds of semi-drunk flag waving Germans, dozens upon dozens of tooting cars, also with flags – it was as if the Germans had already won the cup! Quite an experience.
So we spent a quiet evening in the gardens of the Theologicum instead!
