Deutsches Panzermuseum

This museum was on my list to visit but it is a bit out of the way in Germany. However since this weekend there isn’t anything to do anymore, I decided to drive up there. They have a German version of the tank I used to work with ( the Cheetah ) and also have lots of WW2 tanks including the famous Tiger tanks.

It was very cold, the museum was unheard, which is very appropriate to how I remember working with tanks.

Opa Jansie

This week Marco and I have been taking care of opa Jansies affairs. We’ve had to empty his apartment and take care of all the formalities. We found a lot of old pictures of ourselves but also of much older family members. We’ve been visiting some family as well this week as they all heard that opa Jansie is no longer with us.

Back in Holland

Over the weekend I flew to The Netherlands. Jansie is not doing very well and I decided to come visit him. I arrived around lunch time and talked to him for a little while. I then went to check into the hotel and took a shower. Jansie also fell asleep in a comfortable chair in the “living room” in Rehobot. Just after dinner I went back and we talked for a little bit with other elderly people in the home.
