Aunt Eva welcoming Brian to Germany
We arrived early with no lines or paperwork in Customs. It seemed too good to be true. Then we hopped a regional train to Mannheim. We took a Taxi to Aunt Eva’s and were there before lunch. Easy Peasy! Eva made us soup for lunch. We unpacked and took a walk around the neighborhood to stretch our legs. Amy found a playground to stretch in. Brian wouldn’t let her climb to the top because we aren’t part of the wonderful German healthcare system! Our Travel Gnome is with us and he made a few friends on the walk and in Eva’s garden. We had our traditional “wine-thirty” in the afternoon with Sect, snacks and mini-pizzas. Eva made us lasagna and salad. Britta, Osse, and Nick the dog came by to say hello and eat with us. A few walks around the back garden to get our last steps and we were feeling pretty jet lagged and called it a night.

Amy had to walk around the garden to get those last steps for the day. Aunt Eva thought she was "verrueckt" or crazy.

Nick came for a visit. He brought Britta, too.
