I walked into a fairy tale set

Heidelberg is amazing... pedestrian only cobblestone streets, centuries-old stone buildings, humongous churches with elaborate stained glass and bells that ring out the hour, the ruins of a castle looking down from the hillside out on the river valley.

I spent almost an hour on a bridge over the river Neckar, watching the light play over the green and red of the hillside and the town buildings... not even close to an intense sunset (and I was well positioned to miss all of the best sky-colour around a bend in the river) but so pretty nonetheless.

I only hope my camera can do it justice :-)

And now, for sleep! Desperately needed, since I didn't manage to get any on the plane.
