Der Prignitz


I spent this past weekend in Der Prignitz, one of the most rural and undeveloped areas in Germany. I had intended to post from there. As it turned out there was no cell phone reception and the wireless was nonfunctional in the ch√Ęteau where we were eating our meals. At Landhaus Bresch, where we were staying, the puckish gardener/innkeeper was telling me about what a wonderful place it was for people to come to lose their addictions. He said with a giggle “half of the time, the internet doesn’t work and you have to drop that addiction, too.” I never asked for the password. Instead, I relaxed and soaked in the healing power of green.
