Europe 2009: Wednesday, May 6th, Kassel

The next step in our journey was to visit Georg's cousins in Kassel. Julia and Florian have three delightful children. They are both music teachers and opera singers and have passed on the music gene to their kids. The oldest, who is 8 years old, attends a special music school and is learning harp, violin and guitar. They live in her parents three story house, inherited by the family from the grandparents. The home is 500 years old, used to be a schoolhouse and was moved at one time from another city. They left the original hand hewn beams when they renovated the inside of the house. The whole extended family gathered to visit when we arrived and we had a great time catching up on old times.
