Greetings from a hotel room in Düsseldorf. Got here eventually. We have been debating whether tis better to drive or fly…
Do you prefer to sit at the airport? Or do you prefer to sit at leShuttle? Well, either way, trust me, sit you will! We opted for the Road-Route, the Sally Sat-Nav option. Yeah, well. We had a 50-50 chance, didn’t we? And who’s to say Gatwick would have been less of a farce.
Is it me? Or is the world being brought to a slow, grinding halt by our ever-increasing, ever more automated attempts at improving efficiency? Trying to have a pee in Belgium at a Service Plaza was almost as expensive and twice as complicated as getting a coffee out of the fully automatic coffee shop (half the machines had handwritten signs on them saying “Defecte”, which I’m guessing means no wurky). When did going to the loo and stopping for a coffee involve tickets and passwords?
Ja ja ja. But the sun ist shining and the city beckons, so we are going to investigate…..strap me in!!!
Anyway, this super-duper, state of the art Mac Book Pro has just decided to tell me my disk is full, and I can’t download any photos. Whatever.
I is here to do a job, and a job I is gonna do! And provided I can figure out how to use the invisible shower button in this very swanky hotel, (you know, the minimalistic sort, where you have to wave your arms around to get the lights to come on), I may even wash my hair!
You’ve got to laugh. All this technology, and I can’t even find the tap!
Love & Hugs
