Today we encountered our first hills and decided to shed some weight right after crossing the German border. After passing through Aachen, we were rewarded for our climbing with a 50 km/h descent. WOOSH! We arrived in Eschweiler, following the river the four of us stranded at a local tennis club. A generous tennis coach offered us a place to sleep and a hot shower. After climbing a cherry tree to harvest our dessert, we listened to an Audio book and fell asleep.
