Matt and I headed off to the Koelner Zoo on the metro. It was lovely: very green, glass exclosures. There was a big family of elephants (about 16), 3 hippos who were having fun in the water and making loud noises and showing off their large teeth. Matt loved the orangatangs (the babies were playing) and the cheetahs (who were prowling up and down). A flock of flaming pink flamingo's and long legged ducks.
Tony and H went to the National Socialist ...
We arrived at Dan and Andrea's place yesterday around noon and enjoyed a nice lunch of soup and an Italian pizza at the local (and newly renovated) Italian restaurant a short walk away.

A Sunday lie-in today, to celebrate 6 weeks on the road. We've not missed the TV - seen nothing at all, not even a video. Unfortunately, it appears we have also missed Scotland's game attempt to stay in the Rugby World Cup. We're not really sorry to be moving on from rather smelly Belgian facilities, but Germany/Austria has made us rather soft. Away by noon, just, and trekking north now over more bumpy roads. Most of Belgium appears to be shut on Sunday but we ...
