We left home with our two old girls Winnie and Gwen on Tuesday and arrived in Belgium for the night. Elsa and Mike are accompanying us and driving Gwen. Wednesday night we drove to Hamm and met up with about 35 others from the MB club. Thursday we arrived in Berlin and made camp in a hotel for the next five night with other members joining us here.
Yesterday we all had to put the cars on the apron of Templohof airport. It's the longest building in the world and has enormous presence. After the heat of yesterday when it was in the low 30's we have now woken to cloud and a lot cooler air. Hopefully it won't rain too much!
I will leave you with a few photos. We're not a million miles from Belgium and the Grand Prix this weekend but we do have MY car here, borrowed just for a bit. Hopefully they won't need it tomorrow on the track!
Just so you have a little impression of the vastness of this place. It goes on forever.
Our girls lined up with other members. All wheels have to be in the correct place on the grid! And this was just the start. They are expecting over 2000 vehicles from all over the world.
From some of the most valuable bits of rubber and metal....
To a Vito van that's earned it's right to attitude!
And some of the prettiest bicycles I've ever seen.
It's opening day today so will be busy. Lots more to see and I have a bag with about six sewing projects in it so if I tire I can always find a quiet corner and stitch.
