Had two decent flights on Continental. Into Newark, then on to Berlin. The weather here is nice, pretty much like Oregon. But they speak oddly here. auf zimbaubwaz and stuff like that. Glad I have Belinda to translate into Spanish, then to Belinda-speak, which I understand. Tomorrow we fly to Amsterdam and then Cairo at 1am Friday. Picture one is our room at Thomas'. Picture two is Thomas and Olaf. Picture three is a view in the dining room of the fireplace. The ceilings are about 12 feet tall and just beautiful. More later.
