Hey Everyone, Wow 3 sleeps until were off again... the wait was a lot longer then expected, but we think it will be worth it seeing both India and China. We had a really nice visit home and it was a good break, but now we are very excited and ready to take on the world again. This time around we packed lighter.. hahaha live and learn... and we have A TON of sunscreen and buy spray! haha We have a new mini laptop were taking with us (bday present! :) ) so it will be much easier to update the blog and send our pictures!!! And hopefully we still have it when were done and know one feels the need to steal it! We know your all busy, but we really like hearing from you ... read more

Moin, hier nun die letzte Woche von Sepps und meinem Besuch bei Jaja: Tim hat uns morgens (halb sieben oder so) mit einem Kaffee von Horton's geweckt, und die beiden haben sich von uns verabschiedet. Wir haben danach natürlich noch weiter gepennt. Dann waren wir ein bisschen in der Stadt, in der Bibliothek. Sepp und ich haben uns wieder Putines gegönnt, diesmal mit ordentlich Gewürzen, vor allem Knoblauchpulver, wieder ein bisschen Munition für nachts im Zelt, hehe. Wir haben noch Tim bei der Arbeit getroffen, er ist Straßenbauarbeiter. Nachmittags sind wir mit dem Bus nach Wasaga Beach gefahren, das soll wohl der größte Binnenstrand der Welt sein. Alex hat sone HostCard, mit der er bei Greyhound 25% Rabatt bekommt, aber irgendwie hat die am Ticketschalter das nicht ganz gecheckt mit dem Rabatt, so haben Sepp und ... read more

Jetzt gibts wieder eine Fortsetzung unseres Besuchs bei Jaja. Um 9h sind wir aufgestanden, wir wollten ja möglichst nicht gesehen werden. Alex hat im Hellen sein Notizbuch wiedergefunden. Es gab Duschen, sogar umsonst, die wir natürlich gleich genutzt haben. Ich habe dabei auch gleich mein Handtuch gewaschen, das doch schon ziemlich dreckig war. Alex und Sepp haben sich sogar rasiert. Wir haben das Personal gefragt, ob es irgendwelche Rückfahrmöglichkeiten gibt, aber dem war irgendwie nicht so. Wir haben uns diesmal getrennt, Sepp und ich haben am Highway den Daumen rausgehalten, während Alex auf dem Gelände gefragt hat. Nach einer halben Stunde hielten bei uns auch zwei Typen an, das Auto war zwar schon proppevoll, aber was solls, wir haben uns mit rein gequetscht. Der Hund, der vorher noch auf dem Rücksitz war, ist unter Protest und ... read more
