I was a little too late to get a pic of Klaus & Heike, the DJ´s! Yes, you are right in whatever you think they looked like! When was the last time you saw complete moon washed jeans dresses....?

Yes, it drove on there!

DSCF1059

This gave me the opportunity to finaly visit VOLKSWAGEN! I have never been to WOlfsburg before even though I´m dealing with their products for 22years now.

I never wanted to go because I thought it would leave me with unhappiness! I was so right and I´m going to tell you why!

DSCF1058

A lot of money and effort spent on the park and buildings and so many helping hands everywhere but nobody with knowledge! Very sad!
