We got off the boat at Rudesheim. This pretty little town begins at the river and then makes its way up the hillside towards the grape orchards. Since it was already 1:00 our minds immediately turned towards food. Kathy had selected a cafe off one of the narrow side streets called Quetsch Kommod, so named I believe, for all the accordions hanging in the place. It was a great choice. Then we were free to shop for awhile before heading back to the river where we caught a ferry to take us across to board a train back to Boppard.
We had about an hour after we got back to refresh ourselves before going out to dinner. A reporter with a German television station joined us. She has done stories about Germans researching their ancestors who left Germany, and she thought it would be interesting to interview Americans coming to Germany to look for the ones who didn't leave. She and a film crew with be with us part of today as we do a walking tour of Boppard and visit the archives here.
