A Walk along the Roda River

On the last evening of my recent trip to Jena I took a walk along the Roda River.

The Roda River is a small tributary of The River Saale.

In my post yesterday titled Universal Translator I have a picture of the Roda River where it passes under the railway tracks near my hotel.

About five miles upstream from this location is the small town of Stadtroda. The town of Stadtroda is supposedly the birthplace of Faust.

I hope that you enjoyed these pictures from my walk along the river.
