Claudia's family took great care of us. We swooned at Bärbel's home cooking and got a highly entertaining variety performance - with interval music - by Claudia's cousins, Paul and Anna, aged 4 and 6. Tillman was kind enough to show us around Frankfurt's city centre for the day. He took us up one of Frankfurt's tallest skyscrapers. Of course, the South Africans held up the queue with their bags' dangerous contents. Claudia's pepperspray and my pocketknife (hey, we're born and bred Cape Townians, ok?) we're unable to continue their journey. True tour guide dedication was shown when Tillman offered to sit in a cafe while Claudia and I went shoe and jacket hunting (only a 25%25 success rate on that front. Probably because we get sick of shopping at around shop 3. We have a pathetic female endurance.)
A big thank you to Wolfi and Bärbel for letting is leave our massive suitcase filled with untravelable items at their house! Now we can become backpackers in the truest sense of the word.
