Back in May, M. and I traveled with his mother and her husband to the town of Gera, located 2.5 hours southwest by car. His cousin was getting married, and since it was a holiday weekend, we opted to enjoy an extended stay in the area.
On our first day, we went on a walk to orient ourselves and came across Die Ranch, a “Minigolf-Ranch” with a Wild West theme. Not only that, but it combined this “Cowboys and Indians” feel with various Disney characters. Suffice to say, I thought it was completely kitschy but interesting nonetheless. The Germans have this weird fixation when it comes to the “Wild West.” And while we didn’t stop off to play, the owner let us wander around so I could explore and take photos.
