We went to visit Elke in Idstein near Frankfurt. It is a very pretty town with lovely walks in the wood. The weather was really hot. TC Steinbach was about 30 mins drive away. This was where the Heron Tennis group were visiting so we went over there a few times to say hello and for Max to have some lessons.

in miltenberg we played on clay and i played with a boy called Max aged 16. Then we had Pizza. from Max.
We have been staying with our uncle in Marburg. Max has played tennis with a local boy, Eric, who is 9 on astro turf courts with sand on them - he is learning to slide. We also went to TC Marburg and Max hit with one of the seniors on bright red clay. We spent a day at the Opel Zoo near Frankfurt - our first look at elephants. We hope to see more soon (though not in europe). It is very hot here - we miss the sea! Thanks for the messages from Meggie and Luke T....
Yesterday we had our immunisations - injections to stop us getting nasty diseases whilst we are away. We all had one in each arm. It didn't hurt too much at the time, but today we all have sore arms. We also need to buy some tablets to stop us from getting malaria.
