Page from Goethe’s diary on the day Aschenbach is in Weimar.
Weimar’s beautiful library and some high school kid who wandered into the frame.
Spent half the day with Goethe and the other half wandering the Thuringer Wald south of town. Now back at the hotel working on some notes.
This may be the town that Aschenbach came from. Thanks to Fred Veibahn for pointing the way.

The fortress at Vincennes, in the same complex that houses the military archive.

Planning for today’s walk. 6th arr to meet with Oliver Gallmeister and to see Luxembourg Gardens. Tomorrow–perhaps–a long metro ride to the military archives in Vincennes.
