Hey ladies. I was a bit tied up last week because I was away on a biz trip to Cologne, Germany! I didn't get to see much of the city while I was there, but the good thing was that my hotel was located right across the Rhine River from the Cologne Cathedral area, which is the main tourist area for the city, so I did get a bit of time to walk around there a bit.
Cologne is the fourth largest city in Germany and has the most pubs per capita in Germany - so yes, I ate well and consumed more than my share of beer. The weather was in the mid-60s, so it was fantastic for strolling around. I'll be back to my regular blogging in a bit, but in the interim, here are some bits and pieces from my time in Cologne:
Quaint riverside area near Cologne Cathedral - one of the few areas not directly affected during WWII.
Hohenzollern Bridge and the padlocks of love that stretch across the Rhine.
Sauerbraten, which is a pot roast type dish with a sweet and sour gravy. Served with dumplings and cabbage.
Sounds weird, tastest soooooo good.
Strange little duck that liked to sun itself in the outdoor patio area of my hotel.
Salad of young vegetables with fried boiled quail eggs - best thing I ate during my trip.
Some of my work outfits for the week, taken through my hotel room mirror.
