Tagging along... #21

This is a good trick...

Lurk around one of the guided tour groups that drift through Mainz of a weekend and pick up all sorts of useful information.

For instance.

"This is the St Ignaz church in the Kapuzinerstrasse. Built between 1763 and 1775, you could be excused for thinking that it's Rococco like its contemporaries, the Augustine Church and St Peters. But it is, in fact, a transitional style......

Look, would you mind not eavesdropping, please. Why don't you sod off!"

I guess I'll have to buy the guide book after all....
