I am trying to explain to the kids that even though we land in Germany at 6AM, in Vancouver it will be 8PM the night before – bedtime. It’s a bit too weird for them to completely grasp, especially Lucy.
So we arrive at a very sleepy Frankfurt International and our Customs Official asks us not a single thing. We’re off to retrieve our rental car, but first we must eat! Everyone is famished. After asking for a recommendation, we head to the one place I swore we would not go. You guessed it. The taint (in Douglas Coupland’s words – and I agree). Some of you parents might be familiar with it’s other alias, MacDonald’s. I hate to say it, but it was actually good. Kind of like a greasy hangover breakfast, back when those things were relevant to me. Welcome to Germany!!!!
