First Reading in Vellmar

A couple of weeks ago I had my first reading from "Planet Germany" before a reading club in a little town called Vellmar just outside Kassel. It was great fun - the people, about 115, were friendly, warm, hospitable, everything you could wish for, the best possible opening shot on the reading season.

I didn't get any photos of Vellmar itself or the people, but the next day I took a stroll through the former palace of the territorial prince in nearby Wilhelmshoehe. The palace grounds were designed by some genius Italien landscape architect about a hundred years ago (?) or something like that. After all this time, it still looks good. It also looks like this guy spent a lot of money on things other than the local health insurance program.
