BREAKFAST IN HANNOVER, GERMANY

BREAKFAST WITH JURGEN AND KRISTINA
HANNOVER, GERMANY


Sometimes in life you end up somewhere you never expected or planned for.  One such moment was breakfast with Jurgen and Kristina in Hannover, Germany.  Imagine two little girls attending school in Germany some 60 years ago.  The girls go their separate ways and don't see each other for all of those 60 years yet the memories of each other remain dear in their hearts.  One day in Hannover and approaching 70 years old one of the girls see a face that she remembers from her past.  She approaches and asks about the girls family.  Turns out this was the sister of Kristina's best friend in grade school.  The sister she learned will be visiting Hannover in just a few months.  A meeting was set for the two friends to meet after 60 years.  We arrived in Hannover with my Dad's wife Heide who was one of the small girls who grew up with Kristina in Hannover.  The two had not seen or talked to each other since they were small kids in post war Germany.  We ended up having an incredible breakfast at Kristina's home along with her husband Jurgen.  Jurgen raced cars and boats and once held the world speed record for a Hover Craft.  That is the boat that floats on air with two large fans propelling it through the water at uncontrollable speeds and no breaks.  Jurgen now is an accomplished photographer that was gracious to show us dozens of his photographs.  Kristina is a Diplom-Psychologin or Doctor of Psychology.  Her practice has stemmed some 30 years and she now works out of her beautiful and quiet studio based in the back of their home.  Kristina is the meaning of class and beauty.  She is so giving, warm and sensitive and has an unreal ability to focus on you when talking with her.  She takes total interest in what you are saying and responds so calmly with her soft German accent.  Truly two amazing people who invited us into their home to share a traditional German Breakfast.  I loved the German bread.  Crunchy on the outside and warm and soft on the inside.  The meats and cheese were just perfect and a small soft cooked egg was a great way to start the day.  Truly blessed to have met Jurgen and Kristina and share some really great time at their home.
