Hanging in downtown Stuttgart

Today my sister Megan and I  decided to go into Stuttgart for lunch and market shopping. But mostly it was to tire Caden out so he would take a nice long nap. Downtown Stuttgart is not really a tourist destination but there are some neat looking buildings, museums, and castles.

    I’ve been there! Specifically I went to the Taco Bell on the base. Just in case you needed something to snack on.

    You are missing a Cochlear Lunch&Learn today. Otherwise it is very quiet. You need to come back to liven it up!
