In Bonn Friday, July 29th
Today we drove to Arnhem, Netherlands to have a short visit with my cousin Fred Royers, his Mom, wife Krista, and sister Mona. We had never met except on Skype and it was a pleasure to meet him in person.

With a population of only 150,000, Arnhem looks a lot bigger. But my Dad's Brother Jon decided to settle there after meeting "Mousie" and having three chidren Fred, Mona, and Simon. Fred now teaches kick boxing at his own studio-gym but had a career as a middleweight kick boxer. Seems like the Royers have some of that boxing talent running through the family since my Father was also a boxer, but not at the pro level.

Driving in Europe (my sister Margie drove her Skoda this time) is a bit more "exciting" than in the states since on the Autobahn there are sections that are without speed limits.
