    My hosts in Frankfurt took us to an old hunting lodge for dinner called the Oberschweinstiege. It’s deep in some woods that are just overwhelming. You understand why the Romans called them the Black Forests of Germania. Big trees, with big leaves that just keep going up and up.

    I am used to the Appalachian forests but something is so much darker here. You really get a sense of why they were so effective for the defenders. Big trees with thick canopy over thick undergrowth.
