After the Brachts returned to the states Corrie and I went to Hamm to visit Basti who was feeling better after missing the New Year party with a bad fever. The Autobahn was a lot of fun with Basti because he likes driving as much as I do and knows the rules in Germany. He showed us around Hamm where he grew. Then Simon joined us for a couple days and we toured Munster.

|I'm still not really sure why Hamm made the elephant it's official animal.|
|This bus was set up as an American style hamburger shop but we opted for German instead.|
