… from the carnival parade in Mainz. There’s a saying here that “Petrus is en Meenzer”, which translates as “Peter is a Mainzer” (besides, it also shows the similarities between Germanic languages *g*) and this year this proved to be true once more: yesterday the weather was just fine with even a bit of sunshine. Yet today, it’s grey and dreary with snow in between. Yes, St. Peter, the guy responsible for the weather, is a Mainzer indeed. :O)
