So, we managed to get the car fixed. Amazingly enough, since it was an early Saturday morning. We went on a detour and drank some coffee at a lovely restaurant – and even got a free biscuit. I tried to fix the car stereo, and called my father a few times to get some advise on the wirings. It turned out that we lack correct power on one of the pins, to tomorrow I will have to utilize my McGyverism skills and use some gaffa tape to fix it.
We started to more and more love Miss Nora, the lovely Norwegian voice on the Garmin nüvi GPS. After our detour, she guided us back on to the Autobahn. And due to some FM traffic system, Nora also sent us on a detour off the highway, to avoid some heavy traffic.
We arrived Berlin without any problems, and tried to locate Cafe-Cox. a bit trouble finding it, since Harald had written down the wrong address. But after he walked around a bit randomly, he managed to find the place. We parked our car and Harald went for some beer. I tried locating a food store, and after some staggerish communication with Germans, I managed to find a local store. Bread, cheese, milk, orange juice, chocolate and deodorant, and I was ready for the next morning. A beer at Cafe-Cox. Lovely beer. I think it was a blonde Flensburger.
We then went to eat at a random place. We found a halal fast food restaurant called Ris A Chicken. Potato wedgies, bread and pepsi. Not the best meal, but when you are traveling and are hungry, every kind of food is good food.
Back for another beer at Cafe-Cox – dark beer this time, and some recharging of the laptop battery, and talked a bit the plans for Sunday. Still amazed how we were saved by the Serbian Romas. It really made our day.
Tomorrow we will be headed for Wroclaw in Poland. The GPS tells us it is about 325 kilometers away from our location in Berlin, and I am really looking forward for tomorrows adventures.
Today has been a really interesting journey – Mr. Medbøe is not your average travel parter. Full of interesting stories, views on life and the big issues, but also paying attention to small details. I think the next few days will be just as interesting.
