The Crossroads of the Aether
In the Kronstadter See Kreis, lying to the northeast of Kronstadt a. d. Elbe is the town of Christianshafen, which is located on the scenic Kronstadter See (Lake Kronstadt). Here Ruritania’s noted aeronautical scientist Prof. Dr. Dipl.-Ing. Friedrich Leopold Graf von Zerneck conducts many of his experiments and it is the site of the heavily guarded and classified Kronstadter Luftschiffswerft (Kronstadt Airship Yard). The Graf von Zerneck’s favorite residence, known as Himmelspforte (Heaven’s Gate) is located nearby along with his private observatory.
At your convenience, I shall let Graf von Zerneck know of your interest and intentions.
As I do not have respites when traveling, perhaps this change of scenery will allow me to relax. My search does continue for Mr. Wells, however. I shall finds this time a quiet welcome.
The good professor would no doubt love to show you his observatory. He spends a good deal of time there pursuing matters relating to his interests in aetheric navigation, now that the Zerneck Zentrum and its associated facilities, such as the airship yard, are running smoothly without need for his direct intervention.
I have an innate interest in Astronomy, perhaps the observatory would be my first feature to visit.
You would be most welcome to do so.
This looks like an interesting place to visit, if I may.
