Winter kicked in

We ended the Christmas days with the Villa Musica chamber concert in Engers Palace, which is just 20 minutes drive down through the forest, just at the right Rhine river bank. And just one day after, finally the winter kicked in with snowfall. Very nice. If winter at all, then it should be with snow. Now the morning walk to the (indoor) pool goes through a beautiful winter forest scenery. We also had very nice reunions with friends, and slowly 2014 chills and the new year can come.
