All in all a most satisfactory day, albeit slightly marred by waking up a bit early and having to leave the lovely Essen lady. Weekends are but too short. Naja…
So, my plan had been to finally attend a German Evangelische Kirche service, part of soaking in the whole German experience. Yet again, foiled. Green Leader, my friend from Zimbabwe, told me this morning there was to be a talk at Christ Church Duesseldorf all about the situation in Zimbabwe. I turned up at CCD. It was a communion service. Superb sermon on Titus Chapter 2, very thought-provoking. Good turnout too. Nice cakes after service, too. Always a bonus. But no show from the speaker. Never mind.
So, then onto curry house with H. Great food, great company. Such an inspiring bloke, great sounding board and all-round great witness for Christianity. Then Hbf, dm, for a British-style shopping experience. Most German shops are no-nonsense, pile it high, sell it cheap, no frills. But dm is properly-lit, with bright packing, wide aisles, and their Hbf branch is open Sunday. I now have plenty of cleaning material to give my bachelor pad a good cleanse from top to bottom, and the cleaning has started this evening. Stage 1 will be complete tonight, stage 2 tomorrow evening. Dusting will be the final task for tomorrow.
Home, unpacked. Blast of hypno. Paul McKenna on the Kindle… 299, 298, 297… We’re gone. Now for some TV time.
