Frankfurt am Main

After my three days in London, I continued on to Frankfurt am Main to visit with one of Horst Engineering’s top aerospace industry customers. I last visited this customer 10 years ago, so it was a long overdue visit. I was excited to meet with them, tour the renovated plant, and discuss their growth prospects.

I got to Frankfurt late on a Wednesday night and between the plane, shuttle bus, train, and walking, it was past midnight when I reached the hotel near the  Hessen Center on the outskirts of the city. Thankfully, the plant was also walking distance from the hotel and train station.

After my customer visit, I returned to the hotel and did some work. Then I headed back into the city center to walk around and take in the sites. I hadn’t been to Frankfurt in years, so it was an enjoyable afternoon.

A late day thunderstorm didn’t dampen my spirits. I visited Foto Rahn, a Leica dealer and photo gallery. I soaked in the sounds of the city. Thanks to the Happy Cow app, I found a great vegan restaurant called Naturbar. After dinner, I walked around some more and then return to the hotel because I had to catch the train again early in the morning.

I never post about food. However, this is the second time this week that I’m posting about food. These #vegan dishes at Empress by @theprivegroup were awesome. #instavegan #singapore Everything worked out fine for @trailrunningmom After a little stress, they had her race packet and bib number at the @metasprintseries venue and she kept it upright on the bike! 🚴🏽 She was very pleased with 2nd place 🏆 in her age group at her first road #Duathlon.🏃🏻There are no mountains ⛰ and there isn’t much singletrack in #singapore but it’s still a great city for endurance sports. It looked like there were more than 1,500 athletes at the 3K/18K/3K race with LOTS of kids too. Great vibe! #triathlonsg #teamhorstsports 🇺🇸 Our kids may recognize this great Shoppes @marinabaysands feature from six years ago. I had forgotten how cool it was. #singapore #marinabaysands First time on a road bike for @trailrunningmom In advance of her first ever road duathlon @metasprintseries I taught her some tips & tricks including the do's/don'ts of shifting strategy, cornering, blocking (not), drafting (not), passing, flying mount/dismount, etc. It was fun! Even though she was on a "rental" too, I couldn't keep up on my "steed." #triathlonsg #singapore #teamhorstsports @thecheryltan #cheryltan #singapore #singapore Name those tunes. 11-year-old Feng E is making a name for himself in Asia and beyond. #guitar #fenge #singapore 🎸 @trailrunningmom led #yoga at #ypoedge #singapore 

@ypoglobal #yogini Tremendous #vegan dinner @metasingapore Without a heads up, Chef Sun and his team whipped up an amazing seven course + three “snacks” meal for @trailrunningmom and me, that was worthy of their @michelinguide star. We sat at the counter and watched every step in the process. Chef said that with advanced notice (of our diet), he “would have done better.” We appreciated his perfectionism, but it was just fine. #metarestaurant #instavegan #michelinguide #singapore
