The first one, as you can see, is located in a neighborhood that is basically finished. The plus side of this lot: it is fairly cheap. The down side: the houses are practically on top of each other. We would basically have to drive through the neighbor's front yard to get to our house.
The second one is . . . well, right now it is a field. The city is developing this land and they think that we could get a lot and start building in the beginning of September. This lot is a little more expensive. However, the lots are larger. Also, we could get a lot that boarders a small forest, which means now neighbors in the back. The down side: we can count on continuous building in the neighborhood for several years.
Wildeshausen is a really nice town. I would not call it a city. It is also pretty old. Below is the local church. Yes, just about every town in Germany has a church like this. This one comes from the middle ages. Man, and I thought I was getting old. As an American, I find it mind blowing that I could live near something with such a long history. The church is near the river Hunte. Across the street from the church is an old police station that now has a beer garden. Although I am not a big fan of beer, I am a lover of beer gardens. Yes, this may be the town for us.
