I'll be heading off to Germany tomorrow, September 14th. I'll be back on the 22nd. How functional I'll be when I get back is another question. Of course I'm taking a laptop, but I probably won't have much time to get on-line, and based on past experience, the VPN connection back to the office can be sketchy at best (and all my e-mail runs through a server that's not accessible any other way). So if you post something here that you think I should reply to, or even if you send me an e-mail and I don't get back to you, please don't take it personally.

Best,

-Uwe-

Sprichst du auch deutsch? :) I've visited Germany do much. And seems like I'm going back there in November. I don't even bother going to Audi museum in Ingolstadt, been the so much i know what the permanent show has to offer and the temporal is usually some artwork, that I'm not interested.

I should go see VW museum in Wolfsburg, but that too much in North.

So we're back. I have a few pictures to share.

Let's start with the busy stand:
