Day 5: Bernkastel
After two performances on Sunday we had a free day to spend in a quaint if not a bit touristy little town called Bernkastel. The choir split into many groups, some strolling the town, others shopping (shoes seem to be very popular with the non-male members of the group…). Some went cycling and others – no doubt attracted by the burlesque appearance, took the opportunity to e-mail home at a rather sketchy internet café.
From there we left for Kues, where Hildegard Lüngen hosted us to a lovely wine tasting and dinner. The event took place in a 14th century wine cellar.
The portions (tastings) were remarkably genourous… not what you would get at the average BC winery… needless to say, the atmosphere quickly became quite jovial… What happened in the wine cellar will stay in the wine cellar.
Many thanks to Hildegard for the fabulous time.
