Today was one of our biggest travel days. We left Leipzig fairly early and drove to Wittenberg, Luther’s hometown. We had a chance to see the city, Luther’s home, and the two churches that Luther worked in. Unfortunately, none of them were open when we were there, but we did see them from the outside, including the doors with the 95 theses.
From Wittenberg, we traveled for several hours to arrive in Bremen, Germany. Our progress was slowed by a major traffic jam which was caused by an accident involving a car and two trucks. The cab on the second truck looked to be completely crushed and looked very serious for the driver. We arrived at Mercedes-Benz in Bremen for our tour of the plant, including walking through the robotic body assembly plant and the final assembly plant. Unfortunately, we were not allowed to take pictures in the assembly buildings. It was an amazing tour!
After that, we arrived at our hotel and then walked to the Schuttinger Restaurant for our group dinner. After dinner, we were able to walk around the old city of Bremen at night. It is a beautiful city!
