So onWednesday the 27th of August, myself, my host mother Gaby (at that time) and her granddaughter Karla headed down to Kassel to visit Gaby's daughter and her family. Upon arrival I met Hannah and Ellen, Gaby's other granddaughters and Marcel, her son-in-law. We ate a lovely lunch and then headed for the Schloss Garden's.
The Hercules resting on his club.
The 100's of people gathered to see the waterfall.
One of the many waterfalls that you could see come to life.
The Devil's Bridge.
And finally the main fountain.
Now the water took about 40 minutes from the get go to travel to the base and final fountain. It really is remarkable the the park itself was built by man but the gradual pressure built up from the natural downwards forces is enough to make a fountain that reaches about 25-30 meters in the air.
So that was the park and then we went home played in the backyard and then ate one magnificent dinner cooked by Marcel. This dinner was one beauty of a steak, chips and cooks pears. And my Lord was it delicious, not only did I eat my own steak but the rest (3/4) of Karla's and extra sides. Coupled with Australian Sauces and overall one of the best meals ever.

And finally the STEAK and pears.
We only stayed the one night and the following morning I went into town the the girls and they did some shopping and anyone who knows how I am will know that I just browsed and walked. No shopping was done by me that day. The drive home Gaby took me by the river instead of the Autobahn and the scenery was spectacular.
