Then on to Germany - we are hoping to get to Effelsberg on Saturday or Sunday to visit relatives and be there for the town festival - then spend the next two nights in Hilden near Dusseldorf, where there is another 3M plant - hoping our German friend Hannes Breuckmann can make it down there to visit while we are there.

We will go to Dusseldorf the 2nd night actually and stay at the Ibis Hauptbahnhof to make it easier to get on a 5:45AM train to Brussels, then on the Eurostar through the Chunnel to London.

Next stop is Atherstone, England for a 3rd 3M plant. We'll spend 2 nights there at Chapel House, a Georgian mansion made into a "restaurant with rooms". Atherstone is a cute town with a zoo, and lots of interesting buildings for me to explore during the day while Bill works.
