Angela Merkel, German Chancellor, visits the solar car shop

Today was the official dedication of VAIL – the Volkswagen Automotive Innovation Laboratory. On hand were some executives from Volkswagen, as well as the German Chancellor.

After some mercifully short speeches, Angela Merkel toured the projects related to VW or groups living in VAIL. Our own four minutes in the spotlight went relatively well.

Here’s the photo recap:
