As much as we tried, we probably fell short of being "temporary locals" - but our willingness to try is exemplified in yesterday's lunch at a popular cafe in Minden, Germany - I ordered the curry wurst - and all the wonderful local pastries, wines and beers we tried.
Traveling with my BFF always works perfectly, even when we miss our connecting flight or get lost - his steady hand reminds me that all is okay in the world. Traveling with my brothers and sisters-in-laws was a treasurable experience I won't soon forget, like Saturday afternoon when the 6 of us were piled in a rental minivan blasting down the Autobahn, listening to the Beatles! Sharing giggles and more than a couple bottles of Spanish wine at Morley's with my sweet sisters-in-law is a real treat of a memory. And the fact that all three of us Rank sibs avoid onions is only one of the many discoveries I made while hanging out with all of them. Prost!
