Wuppertal, Germany: We were back here in Wuppertal at Mattias & Andrea’s beautiful home overlooking the valley.  New Years Eve is done differently in Germany than it is in the US.  Here, it’s called Silvester, and the Germans celebrate with fireworks.  It seemed nearly every household in Wuppertal set off a series of fireworks between midnight at 1am.  The valley lit up and together we drank to the New Year & new adventures ahead.
