Yesterday we went to visit Xanten. This was the last 'home' we had in Germany before we moved back to that alien homeland of Belgium.

Of course 20+ years is quite a bit of time, so most sites that I knew changed a lot. However we did find my school, CMC/MHK (Militaire Hoofd Kantine, aka 'the supermarket') and most of the apartments where my friends used to live. Our house however changed a lot so I'm not certain which of two candidates it is. I took pictures and will need to compare to archive data.

The archaeological park is now much bigger and better, of course to Italians who are used to live next to Roman ruins the reconstruction is a little 'artificial' and a lot of museum for only a little of artefacts. But it is very nicely done and we enjoyed it.

I'm left wondering if it would make sense to have a trip also visiting Kempen, Erle, Grevenbroigh and Bensberg...
