Word on the street was Old Town was the place to be as soon as I got to Heidelberg.
So off I went.
But as I strolled past the shops, both quaint and chain — yes, there is a Starbucks and an H&M — a disturbing trend darkened my day.
They were all CLOSED.
Apparently my people don’t work on Sundays. Only the cafes — and a Subway, which was doing a rousing business — were open to the throngs of tourists wandering the streets.
So the teapots that tempted me will have to sit and gather dust. The leather goods store, the card shop, the art store — all missed out, yes they did. I hope their day of rest was worth the purchases that me and folks just like me would have made.
And I’m gonna tell them all exactly that…when I go back tomorrow.
