Architecture of difference

We’ve been in Bavaria for the last couple of days, and yesterday went to the famous Schloss Neuschwanstein. It’s winter here and there has been quite a lot of snow. Coming from a Kiwi summer, this change of weather has accentuated the feeling of difference — best exemplified by the very different architecture of this part of the world.
