“Wheelchair Friendly” can have different meanings. The sticker we discovered on a car at today’s “Straßenfest” in St. Peter-Ording captured them all.

Before Pádraig enjoyed the Bratwurst and Crêpes at the local street festival, he had been to the dentist this morning to get the ‘all clear’ – which was really good news. It was great to see how well he collaborated with the dentist, and – that there are dentists who treat persons in their wheelchairs (gives “wheelchair friendly” a slightly different meaning).

Tomorrow morning, really early, we’ll all be driving to Kiel where the Red Cross has a special centre for assistive technology. We’re so curious to see what the man working in this field for the past few decades can do to help us to understand Pádraig better and help Pádraig to communicate better with us.
