Enjoy the holiday season, however and wherever you celebrate, and have a terrific 2015!
The photo shows the Pompejanum in Aschaffenburg, an idealised replica of an ancient Roman villa, located on the high banks of the river Main. It was commissioned by King Ludwig I of Bavaria and built in the 1840s. Given this year’s spring-like weather on Christmas Eve, a picture showing Aschaffenburg’s mediterranean side seemed appropriate.
