Heidelberg, It’s where exchange happens!

Raphael and his family sent us a video to watch of his hometown in Heidelberg, Germany.  It was an amazing video, which was about 45 minutes long.  Heidelberg to me reminds me very much of Quincy where we live.  It has some amazing castle’s which for me as a history guy is something that is very cool and sheik to me.
