Weekly Photo Challenge – Mine


This is “My Glass of Elelweiss Beer – Mine!”

I never like beer. I don’t like its bitterness. But this was mine, my glass of beer that I liked.

I was having a fun trip to SALZBURG. My friend and I enjoyed very much the music and Sound of Music tour. We asked the guide and everyone: Where can we find the Edelweiss? Nowhere! Nobody had seen it. It was hot, and we were thirsty. We went back to the hotel and ordered something to eat and drink. We found it…the Edelweiss! But it was a beer, not a flower that we longed to see. Well, it was so hot…I told myself, ” I’d better try this beer…may be it is as good as its name”. I did order it. Unexpectedly, it was so good! It did not have a bitter taste, but carried a subtle sweetness.

I loved it so much, that I decided not to share. It was mine!

It was a nice memorable drink, but I never had the chance to drink it again. It was mine for a very brief moment. That feeling was very special, because I turned something from dislike to like! Like it or not!

Actually I never looked it up after i got home, till now. I found this interesting information about the flower and the beer. http://www.csulb.edu/~parayner/TheFlower.html

    The Weissbiers tend to be mild and sweetish I have found … they’re not *just* for breakfast anymore 🙂
