The weather was pretty hot and humid; this made sightseeing harder work than otherwise. We researched average temperatures while planning this trip, but these days were well above usual maximums.

On the Saturday we bought Chris a long-sleeved cotton shirt as the optimum hot weather garment for someone who burns easily. We also spent several intense hours in the Museum of Occupation, which documents grim recent history in disturbing detail.
After an excellent traditional dinner –with some Germans singing loudly nearby– we made our way homeward while trying to scavenge rags from garbage cans in preparation for cleaning our chains.
After a river trip on the Sunday, we watched the start of a section of a citizens’ bike race. Later, Suzanne led us on an Art Nouveau tour, and she and T jived an boogied to a brass band busking in the street. Supper was a picnic of kebabs in the park near the Freedom Monument.
