Tolkien Day in Germany at 5.30 a.m. (pictures before the storm)

Beautiful house at Pont, Lower Rhine

I will be posting more pictures and videos from Tolkien Day 2014 in Pont (City of Geldern) at the Lower Rhine as the opportunity arises. Just so you have an idea how things look like at an early morning, the cock crowing, ducks quacking and the smell of the local bakery opening soon with fresh bread, pastries and cakes. And no, I don’t usually get up that early in the morning, particularly not with events.
