Luckily I was on my feet and had packed the tent before before the rain started pouring down over Stuttgart. Out on the Autobahn Green Car suddenly stopped. A fuse had blown and smoke and steam blew out of the engine compartment. Hjalte now could localize the problem to the water-pump. The plug had burnt and could not be removed so he had to cut the wire. Green Car got rolling again again until it had to cool down some hours later. We were both cold and damp, and treated ourselves for once to a ready-made meal. Later in the day Green Car got power from a large BMW-dealer in Mannheim, and we got several cups of coffee in the posh office. Outside hail had started to fall. Before the sun got down we reached Horst and Konstanze in Budenheim on the Rhine near Mainz. We spent a lovely evening with them with inspiring talks, good food and delicious local wine.
