    Attention Düsseldorfians: CG/TC/MC will be in your city tomorrow, Saturday the 8th

    Peter and I are headed to Düsseldorf tomorrow afternoon in preparation for our flight out on Sunday. We would have flown in the animal cracker box back from Hanover but after the Hamburg flight we’d like to stick to big airplanes leaving the heart of hurricane Emma, not small planes flying into it. That said, if you’re in Düsseldorf tomorrow, Saturday 08/03/08, and would like to… Read More
