Explore your own backyard Thu, Jun 22, 2017
Two days ago I was able to leave class before noon and wander through the old city of Nürnberg. My goal was the main market square where I planned to buy some flowers to put around my apartment. As I reached the square, I noticed hordes of people in bucket hats, sensible shoes, and Hawaiian shirts with their cell phones in the air, pointed at the church. It was noon and the bells were chiming, as they do every day.
But I was confused, why was everyone staring? So I moved in the direction of the flower stand, dodged some tourists' videos, and looked at the church. The small figures that decorate the center of the tower were moving! Oh. Got it. Moving things.
Apparently, in my whole time living in Nürnberg, I had never been to the market at noon before.
Explore your surroundings! There may be something super awesome (like old mechanical statues) there that you don't know about!
