Took a stroll this afternoon through German Village, near downtown. It's a lovely historic area that has been all restored. It's a quite sought after area of town and the houses are lovely and quaint, though most are very small. The area was initially inhabited by German immigrants which gave it its name later on. The Book Loft is my all-time favorite book shop... has loads of character... lots of tiny themed rooms with every type of book imaginable and different music playing in each room. It's quite a treat to visit.
