England--Cambridge in particular--holds a special place in Talitha's memories because of the 4 months we were there during sabbatical in 2006. One of her favorite spots in Cambridge was Oxfam--a charity shop as they call it, a thrift shop as we call it.
So, imagine her glad surprise when we took a roundabout way to Beethoven's house in Bonn, Germany, and discovered Oxfam on the way. We didn't make any purchases there, but it was fun to look around.
To top off the shopping pleasure, there's a Euro Shop near our hotel--everything costs just 1 Euro.
