01/15 - Friends, Altbier and cigars

After a short night we got up at 4 am and took the car to Zurich airport. The plane left in time and so we arrived at Dusseldorf at 8.10 am. Rushing through customs, waiting for Manfred who came from Hamburg and then takin a cab to the hotel. We dropped our luggage and then met with Alex to grab something for breakfast before the big activities started...

The waiting time at the airport in Dusseldorf was shortened with some photo shooting... no further comment needed...

The first cigar of the day was an Upmann Noellas from the glass jar, definetly a stick which'll become really great... I'm sure about this.
