Wallfahrt – Rückfahrt

Gut bewaffnet mit diversen Brezeln, die noch kurz vor dem Abschluss der Veranstaltung gereicht wurden, begann die Rückfahrt um halb fünf. „Auf der A6 ist eh nicht Stau“, so dass wir auch schon nach einigen Minuten wieder standen und uns an einem liegen gebliebenen LKW vorbei schlichen.
