Loeiend hard
The trio returns close to home, at Schengen, where Belgium's tiny neighbor Luxemburg, the host, meets Germany and France. Three burgomasters/mayors testify how akin the neighbors are in culinary and other matters, and how much the EU open borders group treaty signed there did to eliminate border troubles and smuggling. Then into Germany's 'forgotten treasure', the quiet Eifel region.

Pech onderweg
The trio leaves Germany over the Dutch border. O the way to Holland, they meet and admire a bikers unit of the 'maréchaussée' (national police).

It is fully equipped for parties, sex games and fetishes, even BDSM, which are discussed and demonstrated. Blaute can't resist visiting the music-shop where John Lennon, still unknown, once pinched a mouth organ.
