Thailand to Kathmandu to Abu Dabi to Germany in 3 days left its toll on me :o( Being the hypochondriac I am I was worried I had Dengue Fever since I was aching all over and feeling very fluey. Also I was suffering badly from jet lag.
It was lovely to see my good friend Kirsten, but unfortunately for her I spent my few days in Germany walking round like a zombie.
My friend and her partner kindly showed me around; I just wished I had been more with it. My standard of transport increased tenfold as we whizzed along the Rheine in the back seat of a convertible (great hairdo). Not sure if he appreciated my comment that is was like being in the back of a rickshaw.
Hot showers, being able to throw toilet paper down the loo, drinking water straight from the tap, fresh bread and cheese, ahhh the joys of being back in Western civilisation :o)
