So this New Year's Eve was one for the books. Kyle and I drove to Frankfurt to watch the fireworks burst over the river. About fifteen minutes before midnight literally everyone started pouring out of their homes with wine glasses and explosives in hand. The whole city lit up at once. The street turned into a festival in a matter of seconds. It was like nothing I have ever experienced. People above us were shooting bottle rockets out of their windows and I would wager something was being lit every fifteen feet (if not closer) on the street. Sure, it was a total fire hazard. But it was a beautiful fire hazard, and that has to count for something.
I would definitely call it the my best New Year's Eve memory. And wouldn't you know, we forgot the camera... However, with the power of Google & YouTube I am able to give you something to help your imagination. This is the section of river we were overlooking. Focus intently upon the mid-section of this video.
It was a perfect night. Just to top things off, Kyle decided to sing Lady Gaga at the top of his lungs on the way home. And while he'll probably kill me for telling you, I think it's worth it... :)
