june 13th 2006 - arrival in Germany for the World Cup
World Cup Germany 2006 lufthansa
My friend Alexi asked me last year if I'd want to go to the World Cup in Germany. His aunt and uncle in Hannover would apparently be glad to put us up and my friend Debbie in Berlin said the same. So we applied for tickets and were successful - one game in Hanover, another in Berlin. We arrived in Hannover June 13th, two days before our first game.
All of Lufthansa's jets seemed to have the specially decorated football nose - this one is at Munich airport where i had my stopover from Dulles to Hannover.
Alexi (closest), his uncle Horst (middle) and aunt Karin (farthest) and I went for a hearty bike ride through the countryside surrounding Hannover the day we arrived, which really helped cure the jetlag!
