A.W. Faber-Castell on the Rednitz, c. 1915
I’ve barely re-adjusted to the time change returning from Japan — at least I think I’ve adjusted — but in a week my next stop is Germany by way of Amsterdam. Though this trip will mainly take place in Köln, which is part of North Rhine-Westphalia, Bavaria is where I want to go. I managed to change my return flight, adding a few days, which will allow me to take a train south to Stein bei Nürnberg.
Rumor has it there might be a pencil-making company or something in that area: I’ll look around, and if I find anything I’ll let you know when I get back. That is, if I decide not to stay there forever.
