>The power of life – #22

Mainz is twinned with more places than you can shake a stick at.

Watford, for example.

  2. >I have a very soft spot in my heart for Mainz after spending several days there visiting with some of its great residents. It is a lovely town, and, according to your profile, it must be wonderful to retire there. Your photo is indeed interesting!

  3. >An interesting picture. I can’t imagine what it was in the portal.
