I got my wheelie-travel-bag out of the cellar this morning and shall place clothes in it tomorrow. I then went through files and papers and now have all the documents I need for the flight on Wednesday. I’m not sure about warm or summer clothes for there is a difference in weather between Berlin and Brexitland. Even so, the forecast is for cooler weather and rain here on Wednesday.
I wonder what awaits me in Brexitland and if I shall understand the mentality of the Brits better after my visit. Listening to Beeb 4 News. The story is about possible closure of a car factory near Liverpool. It is not the first. Many thousands of jobs are at risk. I am staying on the island for two weeks so please note : NO UPDATES TO MY BLOG FOR TWO WEEKS!
