The weekend

Man in drain - taken by SimonSimon's brother Michael stayed over and we had a lovely time showing him some sights of Cologne. Including, in no particular order of importance, except that chocolate is mentioned first:

  • The Museum of Chocolate - a must see!
  • Examples of clever and well executed graffiti
  • Germans and Poles draped in their respective national flags, heading to and from the World Handball Championships (Germany won and so have been crowned Champions for 2007)
  • The cathedral
  • Some street gratings and drains (the only explanation you need is that my husband likes to look at things from a different point of view, as you can see from the photos on this entry, which he has kindly donated)
  • A shop selling the famous 4711 Cologne toilet water
  • Some churches

Where Kinder Surprise toys go to die: seen at the chocolate museum
