    You did very well RHJones. Thanks for sharing and for your great effort. Excellent Frogster travel report from Mainz/Germany. The shots inside the ‘ Mainzer Dom ‘ are really daring. Great old town photos as well Fabulous finish of the Deutschland Tour as Brazil is waiting in the wings.

    Thanks RHJones for taking the effort. Awesome tour of Mainz. The architecture is spectacular. The mcdonalds and the pizza hut I saw seem out of place.

    The "tourist camo" cap is hilarious. Great idea.

    Re: Poorman's Frogman DW-295 World Tour

    Thanks for your kind comments, fellows! The Germany part of Frogster's world tour is not finished yet... today I took him 50km from Mainz city down the Rhine river, to Bacharach (home town of my wife).
    Frogster can not leave Germany before it took a bath in Rhine river, and taking a look at the vineyards in winter!


    The tower in the background is the "Postenturm", a watchtower built in the 14th century. About 20 years ago, it was so rotten that there was danger of the tower falling into the town. There were two possibilities: Detonate it or refurbish it... They decided to refurbish it, and today it's safe and visited by many tourists.

    This is the town of Bacharach, the building in the middle you can see the "Wernerkapelle", a gothic Cathedral that has never been finished. The castle on top of the mountain is "Burg Stahleck", a former castle which is a youth hostel today. But the building is not that old- the original castle has been destroyed in war by the French in the 19th century, and was rebuild in the 1920's
