Donna finally gets her lingonberry jam

Donna and lingonberry jamAn addendum to the German Parliamentary Library Tour: Donna bought a jar of lingonberry jam in Berlin to bring home for a salmon recipe she makes. Unfortunately, she forgot to pack it in her checked luggage, and it was confiscated when she went through airport security. A couple of weeks ago, a group of German parliamentary librarians came to D.C. to visit, and they all brought Donna jars of lingonberry jam.
