... if they needed to wait for Derek. I told him Derek had already arrived. Before long the bus arrived from the airport with the other people who just got in. We were supposed to have supper at 6:00 and it ended up being after 6:30. We finally met Mark Warther the tour leader whom we had only spoken to on the phone. His family has the Warther Museum in Dover, Ohio. There are 46 people + Mark on the tour. We sat at a table with Gene and Ellie Meder ...
