In case you are wondering, what's with the name? Gluehwurm is the german word for fireflies or alitaptap for tagalog and Toni is fond of this tiny creature.

We've had lots of snow last week and 2 snow days inclusive - kindergarten and other schools were close- So lots of irritated parents who did not know what to do with their children and happy teachers who suddenly found themselves with some free time....here's a picture taken on Monday before the real snow chaos begun taken on our walk
So what to do on snow days? I have just submitted my essay and was not in the mood to study again after a weekend of lots of cramming and panic.. I needed to go to Frankfurt to do something, I took the train and The V. picked me up from Frankfurt. On our way home we decided to eat there and found a little restaurant. Just a simple one nearby Frankfurt Main Train Station.. what a catch! A fish restaurant in the middle of Frankfurt's red district. .. for one moment I thought I was near the beach...i could smell the sea, sand and sun the moment that plate of grillled dorade(sea bream) landed in front of me. Yum! For €8:00 I would definitely come back in that restaurant. What a treat!
The restaurant also has a fish shop - so I could buy fish galore at reasonable prices! This fish vendor was so in for it for having his picture taken :) He was nice to give me 2 extra limes and gave me a wonderful service - will definitely shop for some more fresh fish next week. For those in the Philippines - shrimps are sold here semi-cooked. I was surprised myself when I saw this here in Germany but I thought since we live far from the ocean could be the case - till I saw it in Barcelona.. this way the shrimps stay fresh longer...
Indeed - Frankfurt still surprises me after all these years. Hope to do some blogging about this city now that I don't travel anymore. Much as well make use of my location.
