Christian, a young man from Germany who last visited Afton Station in March of 2012, came to see us again today. Although I didn't remember all the specifics, I knew he had been living in Massachusetts for some time, and going back to my entry about him in 2012 reminded me that he was one of the finest Route 66 photographers I'd met since I've been here on the Route. Today, he brought along a friend who is visiting from Oerlinghansen, Germany. Christian, on the left in this photo, reads my blog every day (and you know how much I enjoy hearing that!), so I must say hello to him here and give him my wish that he and his friend have a joyous and safe Route 66 trip this year.
