Having just got back into Tuebingen the night before, I wasn’t really expecting to get the chance to do little more than tool around in a parking lot. Lari and I drove to the (smaller) Frankfurt Hahn Airport to pick up Kady from her trip to Portugal. But after taking a sandwich, water, gummibaerchen break I locked Lari in the trunk and took off north.. and found then I found twenty dollars. While that would have been a pretty good story, I was really just lucky enough that Lari trusted me to drive. We took a few practice laps around the parking lot to prove to her, and myself, I still knew how to drive stick , and then took off. All in all, I drove for about 4 hours, possily 400 km and just barely pushed over 100 mph (162 km/h). I started out grinning like an idiot, and ended probably feeling more confident and driving faster than i should. Whatever the case, thanks to Lari and Kaddy for the chance to cross something off a list of mine I never thought I could.  (Pictures from Berlin/Leipzig soon)
