14 - Aachen
Woke up late (I think, I have no idea what time it is) and we ate a little something. We then left
to explore Aachen (Germany) with Mike (Gabbi's son, who spoke some English). We started off with
beer at a pub, which Oskar paid for. He managed to get some deutch marks with a credit card, but
I'm still running around with only American and Holland currency.
After beer, we saw a church and
the town hall (more pics?). It's been raining off and on the whole day.
After this, we went to
a hospital, which looked more like a factory (pic) on the outside. Inside it had many colors in
the carpet and walls. The main lobby looked like something out of star trek. The hospital has a good
view, and from that view a couple spindle tops can be seen. It is here that the highest point in
Holland can be seen, as well as the spot where Belgium, Holland, and Germany connect (oskar's pic).
We climbed up the spindle top and scanned the horizon, it was 4.50 geldon for each of us 4. We
came back and watched some German tv, many of their shows seem to be American (like a dubbed Tool Time we
saw). We are now headed to a mall and coffe shop in Maastricht, I still have no deutche marks.
The brothers think I can use my Holland money. On the way to Paris tomorrow we'll try and get French
and German money, at an airport perhaps.
Well, just stopped off at the Netherland American Cemetary and
Memorial (pics, u.s. movement in orange).
