In Laufenburg we opened the entrance door of our apartment just to discover that it was not any warmer than our house in Maseru during the winter months: 9 degrees. To attract the maximum attention of all Laufenburgies (at least part of the 2169 existing Burgies) we parked the car just in front of the door – well to be more precise it was not too far from the middle of the road. Fortunately, there was not really any traffic due to a nearby X-mas market where the local Burgies tried to do their level best to warm up with Glühwein and discussions about our car. Of course they were a little astonished on the fact that such a dirty car was allowed to enter Switzerland and especially the village limits of Laufenburg. Then they discovered the black box on the top of the car – a few guys dared to ask what it could be, but definitely they were a little overwhelmed by the answer a rooftop tent because they never thought of elephants when camping.
They read the stickers – Cape Nature, Sudan, Kenya, I love Ngorongoro and of course Cooperation Lesotho – Germany. Few questions, nobody would dare to out himself for not knowing where this kingdom is. Probably most of them rather limited their reading to Germany. As Laufenburg and our parking was not more than 30 m from the German border, we suppose a majority of the Burgies could imagine where Germany is. Unfortunately nobody really put some money for the next trip in the basked we have placed in a strategic position.
