On the last day of July, Marco and I went into Lüneburg to take a picture for the HGTV House Hunters International Globe Traveler competition. I explained what the globe traveler competition is before in an earlier blog post — but basically, all you have to do is take a picture somewhere abroad with the House Hunters International bandana.

Here is the picture that Marco took of me. I am standing on a bridge overlooking the Ilmenau River in an area of Lüneburg known as “am Stintmarkt (stint market).” During the Middle Ages, stint (also known as smelt, which is a kind of fish) was frequently traded here. Today this area is full of bars and restaurants.
