... runs it, Tim, is a leathery sun-tanned Aussie man with incredible experience training and riding horses. We went out under his guidance every day as well as several staff members who rode with us when they weren't cooking our meals.

In the very far corner with no signs telling me that it is there, the Lufthansa station. I go and tell the lady I need to catch a flight and don't know where my luggage is.
