After check in at base at the Landstuhl Inn (one of a chain of Air Force Inns across Germany and maybe elsewhere) I walked about 1.5 km (I'm metric now) downhill to the town of Landstuhl. A mini version of Oktoberfest was happening so I sampled a currywurst (apparently a local favorite) and a cheese crepe (OK, but not as good as the Swiss version). Luckily, beer is spoken in an international language, because I forgot to bring the German phrase book to town. I also forgot to bring the camera, so no photos today.
Tomorrow (Monday) morning I'll get checked in to the hospital, which is only a block or so away from my room. I'll post details of the 1st clinical day tomorrow.
