Flag of Germany  , North Rhine-Westphalia,
Saturday, May 24, 2008

In February I decided to make a quick dash over the North Sea to see the guys in Essen. I flew with from Leeds/Bradford Airport for about 14 pounds and landed in Dusseldorf. We had a fun time, except all the Luckemeyers were sick. Lars was wrapped up in bed for most of the time. I got to spend some quality time with Jurgen though, and he took me to some nice places. I even visited the school where Margita teaches and spent a lesson with an English class. The kids were really nice.

Towards the end of my stay, Lars was getting better and had to go to uni in Bochum, so I went with him and sat in on a statistics lecture (in german)! That was fun, for about 10 mins, but 1.5 hrs or something and I was starting to wish I could speak german. After that we wandered around the campus and had some lunch and then went to the mining museum. We went to a replica mine shaft and learned all about mining in the Ruhr area.

I flew from there back to Glasgow, where I met up with Duncan and had a couple of quick games of pool and some beers, before almost missing my train back to Leeds! Oops.
