Did I forget to mention the ice cream?

    After arriving in Saarlouis Lucy and I enjoyed a treat on the hotel balcony, overlooking an old market area.
    Lucy got an ice cream. I got a beer.
    The regional beer for the Trier area is Bitburger, a very foamy pilsner with a really hoppy taste; more hoppy than Stella Artois.
    Enough of the beer. I just had to share the photo of Lucy digging into an ice cream treat. These types of dressed up ice cream treats for children are common throughout Europe. Lucy is old enough to order one of the more sophisticated ice cream treats, but the kids' ice cream was cheaper and a lot more fun!
    The restaurant had one treat called the Mickey Mouse. I wonder if they are paying a royalty.
