Hi Steffen. I recognise the German Post Box instantly, I have just returned from 10 days in your great country. The closest I came to Stuttgart was the Sinsheim Museum. Wherever we went we searched for the yellow boxs for our postcards. Have a great month and I will follow your blog regularly as I really like how it is both Deutsch and English.

Lieber Steffen -
Du hattest mir einen Brief mit Luftpost schicken. Einfach in einem gelben Postkasten hinein werfen! Dann warte ich bei meinen Briefkasten hier in Eagan nach 5 - 10 Tagen....
Herzliche GrueBe aus Eagan,
Leif

Yes, wouldn't it drive you crazy having to fill these boxes. I'd not realised Germany mailboxes were yellow although goodness knows I've been in Germany often enough.

The yellow box is quite afamiliar sight... The second image could be almost anywhere here, in a large apartment building. Great choice for the Theme Day!

both look official, industrial, sterile and all about business

I do like the yellow over our blue. I agree with Jilly it would make my nuts to fill these everyday. Great shots.
