Status Report -- December 2

Luis and I landed in Frankfurt. The weather is cold and gray, but what do you expect for Germany in December. The trains were running a bit late, so there may have been worse weather elsewhere. Once we got a bit east of Frankfurt there was snow on the ground -- very picturesque.

My newfangled (for me) 3G modem works great, even while on the train...

Luis and Fred on the way to that first Spezial

Now for the bad news. In the 10 years we've been doing this trip I don't think we've ever had anybody be delayed because of flight problems. Well, today we had two: Jim Blackmore couldn't
get out of Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario and Tom Rierson got stranded while changing planes in San Francisco. Not a good start. We'll just have to drink their share of beers...
