Photo of the Week--2/28/11

What is it about Germany that brings out all these picture-perfect castles? Neuschwanstein was built by a mad king, and this castle, Burg Eltz, has been in the same family for 33 generations. Actually, it's owned by three branches of the same family, one of whom still uses part of the castle. The rest is open to tourists, but at one time there were around 100 family members living in over 100 rooms of the castle. With it still inhabited, no wonder it's still in good shape, with fresh paint and lovely decor inside. I'm not sure why Boy is making a monster face, or holding up six fingers, but at least he's facing the camera.
