It's working for me. In case you can't get the site to open, it's a link to the local brewery, which is called Aass (meaning 'hill' in old-style Norwegian).

It looks like you got a manly cut on your leg from your teaching experience.

And a video. :D

I wasn't the best driver out there, but in the video you can actually see me overtake someone. ;) Our team of 2 drivers ended up taking silver, by a narrow margin of only 0.2 seconds.

Well, it could be a gay peacock? With some colorful feathers hidden beneath the white landscape. ^^

I've been to the Mosel valley, one of the best places to be if you're an oenophile. :)

10 points if you can place the town I'm in. ;)

Yep. Sign-reader. :tongue:
It's a lovely spot, btw. if any of you are ever contemplating going there. Lots of small streets with shops and cafes.

I looked at some pics and it does feel like a small and cozy town, quite charming.

Along the Mosel river, there are many small villages with small wineries selling their local wines. When I say "small wineries", they're basically family run operations selling their produce to tourists and local restaurants. I like them because I can pop in, have a taste and buy some bottles. Of course, there are also a couple of large operations, like Markus Molitor, but I like travelling along the valley and stopping by places that I fancy.
