Part 2 of the adventure. The hoppies survive a boring layover in Hong Kong
not able to leave the airport. We wave to Howard's house as we fly over. We
fly overnight to Zurich, waving to Didier. Philippe almost certainly does
not see us waving as we pass rather north of his house in France.
I threaten to adopt the perfectly charming and helpful staff of Eidelweiss
airline as they fly us into Berlin. Mrs Hoppy declines on the grounds that
she can find her own chocolate without perky 20 something Swiss senoritas to

Berlin is warm and sunny and oh so quiet, a public holiday today. The M8 is
out for its first stroll very soon. Staying in wonderful aprtments right on
the Ku'damm, in the heart of shopping district.

Stay tuned!
