Everyone smells like smoke
May 23, 2011
Its true everyone here smells like smoke, because they all smoke! Took the train to the oldest City in Germany, Trier. 2 Hour train ride was cool and the German trains are on time down to the min. Was going to rent a car and drive up the Mosel river valley but I couldnt rent on base without orders and since that will never happen again we decided to take a day trip to Trier. What a cool town, the place is like a Renaissance festival on steroids I guess that's because they aren't pretending its the history of this old town. Had lunch in the old Market which dates back to 958 AD. Nothing crazy to report but some great sites, to bad it was Sunday and everything was closed, Trier is the beginning of the Mosel Wine region and I would have liked a bottle of sweet German wine. Tomorrow there is a 12:40 flt to Rota we are going to try to catch, its a C-5 and they break alot so I'm crossing my fingers. Rota has a rotator flt that goes to Crete on Wen and returns to Rota on Fri with any luck we will see both Crete and Spain. Oh and Erika and I are sick in Nigeria and cant leave the country until we pay the hospital bill please send lots of cash, I will setup a pay pal site soon(is it really a Nigerian scam if were not in Nigeria?)!
