On our second day, Sabine drove us to Lorraine ,France in her Mercedes. We arrived at the American cemetery early on a beautiful day. Being the first person in my family to visit my Uncle's grave since WW2 was incredibly moving & Sabine was most helpful through her sensitivity and experience. Returning, we crossed the Rhine on a ferry & had schnitzel at a little restaurant in Rudesheim. Sabine picked the perfect Rieslings for Jan & I. We also went to places in Mainz, on our own, that Sabine suggested!
