One Last Schnitzel

We concluded our time in Germany with the end of the school year and flew back to the USA on June 29th 2012.  Of course we weren't the only teachers that were leaving, so the last month was jam-packed with last-minute trips and "goodbye" dinners and events.  For us, there's no way that we could leave without having one last bash at our neighborhood schnitzel locale:  zur Sonnenuhr.

The ladies decided to wear their dirndles and we were showered with a few gifts as we shared one last mushroom-covered schnitzel while watching England play in the Euro Cup.

Katie gave us a card with this message inside:  it's either good bye or good luck in Cantonese, along with the Hong Kong flag 

We were also gifted these cool apple-wine glass toppers, decorated with items made famous in Frankfurt such as:  apple wine, hand-cheese, heart surgery, and green sauce! 

 

This meal never got old:  Pfifferlingen Schnitzel with roasted potatoes and Helles Hefeweizen beer.

It was a great time had by all and no one left hungry.  I'd contemplated putting zur Sonnenuhr on Trip Advisor, but we thought better of it since it is a true locale and I'd hate to ruin that atmosphere by sending unnecessary tourists out to try it.  Instead, the secret will stay with our co-workers and we vow to stop by if we're ever taking a layover in Frankfurt again.
