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 ...
... English and I am Australian, but she couldn't speak English so she walked on with a smile. Our walk in the afternoon was a guided walk with park ranger. The group was large with a few very well behaved German children, it was a long walk and no complaints from them. The ranger only gave the talks in German but a nice man with reasonable English tried to give us the gist of them once we started walking again.

Driving into Verviers it was obvious that we were no longer in Germany - old, scruffy, and folk of every nationality wandering about. Even the town centre didn't look very appealing, so we decided to press on to Spa, home ...
Noah here! Rain for 40 days and 40 nights and we're still afloat. Slight exaggeration, but we've had our share, and I'm writing this to the patter of raindrops on the roof. And we had plenty more overnight in Koblenz. As planned we made visits to several Aldi/Lidl shops, and we're now awash with wine. Low centre of gravity though so we shouldn't capsize. Today was blissfully free of road closures in spite of a cross-country rural route that avoided motorways ...
