But it wasn't long before we headed out of town, only to find ourselves in a new place,...Tubingen.
Tubingen was decorated up for Fasching, the German version of Carnival.
There were flags and banners across town, and witches and masks hung from doors and window shutters to mark the holiday.
Ths kid were, um, slightly confused by the Fasching witches and masks.
Less than a week had passed since Valentine's Day and the kids were asking,
"Is it Halloween now?"
