A day at the cricket

A day at the cricket

Brushed up on my picnic-ing skills – and watched some excellent cricket on the 1st day of the only women’s test to be played in the Ashes series.


Late afternoon at the Weinfest in Wiesbaden. Most of the Rheingau wine makers descend upon Wiesbaden and set up stalls for a week-long festival of wine. The Wiesbadeners turn up in droves and by the time it gets dark it is packed with people moving from stall to stall sampling Riesling after Riesling.
