We all drove to Messe together, and from there I took the train, by myself, into downtown Frankfurt. Thankfully, the train system there is very intuitive, and I had no problems.

Back and Messe, I sat at a cafe, read more of the Guernsey book, drank a Fanta (which in Germany is more like a San Pellegrino than Shasta orange soda), and fell asleep a few times. I noticed around 5:00 pm that the cafe employee was starting to clean up, so I got up to leave. He told me I had not passed go, that they were open until 6:00 pm, and that I was welcome to come and sit whenever. So nice!
Anyway, after the show the guys were exhausted and starving. Neither had taken a break for lunch. So we stopped at a pizzeria in Bad Camberg and ordered some to take home. They did not have an English menu either, and spoke almost no English. So we did our best, and the pizza was pretty good.
I think we were all too tired to play the train game that night.
