Wuppertal has a very interesting suspended railway system you could ride on if you need to go up there to track it down.

Just thought I'd share that with you. (and so many people say they are on tender hooks which is of course wrong)

Let me guess - you've bought the wife a beautiful surprise gift, and just can't wait to make sure that the fragile item has arrived in one piece:

In case of similar orders my wife always says, don’t panic it will arrive sooner or later. And she has always been right about the delivery.

Hence I didn’t reply until the good news came.

Mde famous by a circus elephant named Tuffi who was taken on the train for promotional purposes but panicked mid-way, broke through the doors, jumped into the shallow river far below .. and survived uninjured.

Even today, you can buy Tuffy tat in tourist shops in Wuppertal.

Maybe there is a shortfall of tourism. Hence they try to promote it by all means.

So, have you made all the recipes yet?

Tom

P.S. Most animals that we eat are vegan, so therefore we are simply being more efficient!
