Germany: The Land of Smells

From the mouths of babes, eh? Those were Paul's words as we made it through Germany last night. Beautiful countryside, made more beautiful by lots of manure. Similar in Poland we've found. But ok, to the point - after our rough start on the A2, we're back in this, in Wroclaw and heading to points east tomorrow. We were stopped briefly at the Polish border, but then again we really do look like a bunch of crackpots, and when you hear us coming, good lord it's awful. our car is incredibly loud and hot but amen thank you baby jesus there have not been any further troubles with it. We attempted to make it into Berlin last night but after about 14 hours of travelling - by taxi, ferry, and car, we threw in the towel, in a town called Holmstedt (I think?) and stayed at a lovely little family run hotel. Then we got right back in the car, and got mildly lost in Berlin, nearly hit someone outside of Wroclaw, and accumulated an unbelievable amount of water bottles in our car. We are hoping to get into Ukraine tomorrow - but after hearing that another team had a bribe demanded of them of thousands of USD - it may not happen as fast as we'd like. But then again, Paul and I keep good company and have lots of good books. and a tarp to set up if we need the shade. Wish us luck!

Ramrod got into Ukraine for free in the end, though they spent 19 hours at the border and called both the US and UK embassies to do it.
