Getting on the ferry

Today we did a new attempt to pay the tax. The guy in the post office starred at me and asked me if I were the one who was there yesterday. Yes, I said. I have got the new insurance papers flown in by airplane. Soon I had the new tax-sticker in my hand and the car was safe from being towed away or fined.

Tim took me to a marketplace where we ate some food and looked at interesting people and scrap. Must interesting was on the way home where he showed me a pub with a place inside, reserved for putting a dead mans coffin before he was berried. I also saw a canal boat, some nice telephone poles and a nice church.

It was time for photographing before the car left Britain. First out were Emma and their dog Bill. Emma works in a big charity organisation called Trees for cities. She is also one of the people behind starting the organisation. Their goal is to plant trees in London to make the environment better.
Then it was time for the whole family to get photographed. They can here be seen pointing at the future with great believes and faith of a world with organic food and a stabile climate.

I got the new vedbil-stickers on and it was time to go to the ferry in Tilbury. I was a bit nervous because I have never been driving a car on my own in England before. But it turned out, not to be too hard. Tim wrote down a good description and guided me out on the main roads.

Thank you very much for everything Tim and Emma!

I arrived at Tilbury 4 a clock. It gave me time to go and have a last meal in England at a pub. I drove aboard the ferry 6 a clock and we departed 8. Ive got a nice and big cabin and the food is good.
