Well at least we had all the time to watch all the shows and enjoy being there.
So when after the shows finally 52 people and all the stuff found their way in four tour busses, one truck and a trailer we were ready to go to Paris… Peter brought back our van and we will meet him at 013. After a bumpy ride we woke up in Paris, with one eye open we saw the Sacré Coeur de Montmartre and it was time to get up... First we drove straight up to a parking space near the Seine, so there was enough room at the Bataclan to unload the truck....
We said goodbye to Johan who couldn’t do all shows, but we’re sure glad that he was with us the first three days.
A pity that the tour bus couldn’t stay at the venue so we end up far from the centre of Saarbrücken, a problem what was easily solved by taxi... so with the four of us we end up at a Christmas market at Saarbrücken and we couldn’t resist the cuisine of Germany and had a breakfast and dinner at the same time.
When we saw it all we went back to the bus and heard that we all got free tickets to go to the Monster Magnet show. So within the hour we were back again... and getting a flash back, because after the show again we end up at the Garage pub.
While we were at sleep we arrived at Z7 in Prattelen a shame that we didn’t see much of the country side like last time we were at Suisse. In a good mood and ready to rock.
Besides the dressing rooms there was a big room where we got spoiled by Sandra’s cooking skills.
Again on a Christmas market were we met some of Cradle of Filth. Really nice atmosphere even the rain couldn’t spoil that one. Although when it was really getting cold we went to a hotel, were we seeing the wonders of a (kinky) shower.
We went back to the bus and we were missing the running engines of the bus, so it wasn’t the same sleeping in a bus what is not moving. The next morning we wake up early and wanted to see Dresden by daylight. So we went to the public transport and went back to the old centre.
Back on time for the sound check. Cosy venue, with really nice spring water but again the venue was really cold.
For us this became the last show. Karin got pneumonia and Manon hardly could walk and needed rest. When we heard that there was something with the bus and one had to go back, the decision was quick but really hard to make.
