57035--a day behind

We took a drive to Luxembourg. It was rainy, and the city roads were narrow and treacherous. We had a hard time finding anything, including the way overpriced Thai restaurant Malida wanted to try. I spent the entire day fretting about the car I borrowed, concerned that I would hit a slick spot and spin out or something.

On our way back to Germany, we stopped in Ettlebruck to take a picture of the George Patton statue at the entrance to the town. I had been here once before 35 years ago, and wanted to get a picture.


We ended up on a small country road that dead-ended, and had to turn back, only to be detoured off the road we got on. I was stressed.

We finally made it back to Trier just as it was getting dark. I breathed a sigh of relief as I turned into the parking garage, hit a sharp curb as I turned in, and ripped a big hole in the tire. Sigh.

We're back in Frankfurt, but I'm still stressed.

Other than having a fairly miserable auto trip (Next time I'm taking the train), I did manage to finally read and finnish Neil Gaiman's American Gods. It was an amazing story, and I was sorry when it ended. Now I have to find something else to read, as I have read both of the books I planned to read on this trip.

Tomorrow is our last day in Germany. Sunday we move on to Paris. By train.
