I can’t seem to walk past the Marktplatz in Mainz without whipping out my camera. A transportive scene, feeling both modern and historic at the same time, the Markplatz is so many things: door step to our apartment; home to Mainz’s thrice weekly market and several lovely cafes; stage to the occasional opera singer and accordion player; and location of the massive Mainzer Dom or St. Martin’s Cathedral. I have no doubt that this will be one of several ode’s to the Marktplatz.

I’ve yet to see the Marktplatz in the snow, but based on the current sky and temperature, I have the feeling it will happen soon….
