symbolizing the US was there as a guest and not a conqueror.

On Sunday, I went with a friend to Hessenpark. This is an outdoor "museum" where they have reconstructed a number of (really) old buildings from all around the state of Hesse that would otherwise have been torn down. The oldest building I noted as a church first built in 1480. Most were from the 1800s. They do demonstrations on how sausage is made (literally, not just part of a pun about legislating) and cheese. Really cool place that would be a great place to take kids.
