We didn't do much touring we were happy in the 3 places we stayed.
Dömitz from Sunday 19th August until Friday 24th
Wunstorf where Hans misspent his youth to 28th
Warmeloh with our friend with the horses until 30th.
We enjoyed being there even though not able to do too much because of the heat.
Right next to the Elbe, good for dogs, good walks and a Museum thats not worth looking at.
There are a few visitors in cars and on bikes during the day because this is a well known place from DDR times.
The Iron curtain, was more than one fence, in special areas including this place, there were 3 iron fences like this, the fence ran 1,384 km through Germany.
The chap that owned the 4 wheeler was born in Dömitz, they were not allowed to own a ladder, (could be used to help scale the fences) the farmers when using tractors within a certain distance of the fence were accompanied with a guard, (tractor could be used to ram the fences.)
It was not easy for them to see the river which was just a bout 200 meters away from the first fence.
The other picture is of the lookout tower which used to be a few meters away from where we parked.
We learn something new every day.
