About the airport: there is an expansion worth 50 billion Euros in the works, I was told. It is already huge and busy. The slogan on the building is: Hessen, an uns fuehrt kein Weg vorbei. (Hesse, there is no way around us.)
The picture on the wall behind the old Mercedes you could win illustrates how the airport used to be. Our Dad used to take us there for Sunday afternoon excursions. I still remember how it was: small with that tower on the picture.
Just above the tail of the Lufthansa plane you can see the Melibokus mountain of the Odenwald. I was born in a town close to the foot of the mountain.
Oh, and the airport has a church, too. I read in the newspaper, that there are all types of church services held there and it often deals with refugees and waves of people coming from war-torn countries suddenly needing accommodation. There are plans for two more chapels at the airport. I actually walked past it and noted it had signs for the R.C. and ev. Luth. church. I was tempted to peek in, but it seemed like there were things going on. Busy place, all around.
