  Confluence of three rivers coming together just downstream of Passau. We were all bummed that in the European Union we don't get passport stamps at the border. Gabriel drew a stamp for us as we crossed into Austria! Border crossing. Fred stopped for pictures too.

  Second ferry back to the north side. An unpowered cable ferry. It powers up its engine for the last couple feet of docking. The cable does the back-and-forth across the river.
