At the Danish / German border
Oh man.... what a trip!!! Its been so looooong.. The  thing a about reading a book... well that did not work out. Because after only a couple of hours I was joined by 2 russians in the "coupe" where I was sitting and they decided that they wanted to sleep. so I want out in the hall to sit there instead and read my book, but after only 15 min my ass.. (sorry my french) couldnt sit on that little piece of metal stickin´ out the wall that only covers half your bum chair take it anymore. So I decided to follow the russians strategy of how to cope with a long train ride.. SLEEP IT THROUGH....

After a couple of hours we all got awakened by "POLIZEI" the German border patrol that wanted to see our passports.. The 2 Russians went through without any problem, and then It was my turn.
Night stop at Hannover...
... They studied my passport, checked every single page and then finally made a phonecall of some sort to check out if I was wanted or something.... hahaha... feels good to know that Germany havent changed since the last time I went through the borde. But I made and then went back to sleep again so after a couple of hours of waking up smoking the occasional cigarete at the long stops at train stations through Germany I finally made it to my final destination Düsseldorf.... I arrived just close 7 and decided to try ang go straight to the hotel and see if I could make an early check in... crossing my finger ocourse since normal check in time is a 14:00...

But Wow... I was in luck!! It was no problem for me at all to check in so early in the morning and it didnt even cost me ekstra... that sure is a nice way to start my stay here in Düsseldorf, So I got this nice single room on the 4th floor and just found some free wireless internet. So why no get started on my blog on this TB Meetup.... Well I will be off for know... I will try and take a little nap before Im meeting Lauro and the others at noon.... So stay tuned and see you soon....
