We bid farewell to the Netherlands today, and headed off to yet another new country: Germany. This particular travel day was rather uneventful, and the only stop we made during the three and a half hour drive was for lunch. We might've enjoyed our lunch break a bit more if it wasn't for the procession of men *ahem* "relieving themselves" against the trees right in front of our car. We wondered if this general lack of self-consciousness was a local thing. Turns out they were just too cheap to pay the fifty cents needed in order to use the facilities. The rest of our drive was more scenic, however, and we crossed the German border with a cheer.
We're staying in Mayen for the next few days. We took a couple strolls through the winding streets and squares of the small town, and picked up a couple frozen pizzas for dinner, as we are once again living with a rather underequipped kitchen, with just one pot. Our internet connection has also been less than reliable. But the sun is shining and it's actually starting to feel like spring, so we'll be more than happy to get out of the house.
