hot in Schliengen
August 22, 2011. It's been blazing hot in Germany this past week. Tomorrow is the first day of school, so after I got everything ready, I took my scooter down to Schliengen and sat in the shade with a Coke to do this sketch. Schliengen is actually engraved on the Arc de Triomphe in Paris, as the French thought they had won it in 1796. However, it is also mentioned on a monument in Vienna, as Austria claimed it had won the same battle. Either way, it's most popular with us for a restaurant there that has a Monday night special on pizza.
