Asam Church (&copy by Johannes Beck)I got up a bit earlier to go to church. No, I'm not that religious, but every Sunday noon there is a organ matinee at the Maria de Victoria-Church. I never made it there til now, but it's a wonderful thing. The church is very beautiful because the whole ceiling is one fresco with a stunning 3D-effect painted over 250 years ago by Cosmas Damian Asam. The weekly concert is for free and today it was even special as a brass quintett called "Schutzblech" joined the organist playing Haendel, Grieg, Rossini and others. A wonderful experience to start the day with, I will definitely go there again.

In the night I assembled a mosaic of aerial photographs taken by the land surveying office. So now you can see my hometown Schwerin in Mecklenburg with its many lakes.

The village is called Wittenf?den and is located a mile west from the city limits. The lake between the Schwerin and Wittenf?den is called Neum?ler Lake and is around 5 km long.
