Having spent several centuries just down the road in the glittering metropolis of Celle, I can only concur and add to "very flat", "very sandy", "very wet" and "very very boring".
On the up side, the locals are interesting and many are oddly evasive when questioned about events between 1937 or so and 1945. Look out for the picturesque village of Hambuehren, where all the houses have walls 1m+ in thickness, on account of they were actually an ammunition factory and treat yourself to a trip out to Bergen-Belsen, which, despite not having been a death camp per se, still managed a pretty impressive throughput, including two of Glad's uncles.
i see you have been missing having someone to abuse for the last 3 weeks whilst we were all away on exercise and pre-deployment training!
