Our train from Bamberg to Biberach was scheduled to leave around 1:30pm, so we had a whole morning to kill. Paris unfortunately had to work, so she headed to the nearby Internet cafe, while Choo and I went into the Altstadt for some last minute souvenir hunting. She dragged me into a shop full of beer steins and spent a great deal of time carefully picking out her gifts.
Then it was my turn. But on the way, we ran into Brian and Liz one last time, on the upper Altes Rathaus bridge. We all traded pictures and said goodbye. Again.

My first shopping-stop was zum Dominikaner, where we enjoyed some fine Gemütlichkeit late Sunday evening. They sell a "Bamberger Beer Basket" containing a bottle of beer from each Bamberger brewery, a commemorative stein, and some other goodies, and they even ship to America! So mine should arrive shortly after we get home.

Choo and I got back to Spezial at noon, an hour after we told Paris we'd meet her there. (I blame Choo's dawdling at the stein store.) Paris was fuming because it turned out she didn't have to work after all, but at least she had some Spezial Märzen to calm her down. We had lunch and trudged to the Bahnhof.
Four trains and five hours later, we arrived in Biberach. Our hotel, Drei König, is conveniently located in the Marktplatz, and they serve beer from Brauerei Berg. I don't have any pictures here, because we're going to Berg tomorrow already.
