It's a beautiful evening in Cologne, Germany. I'm looking at the clock as I write: it reads 1015PM.
The days are getting longer so it's not quite pitch black outside; there's still some blue ink swimming in the skyline. My window is cracked and I can hear the cars surfing by on the highway outside and there's just enough breeze whispering through the drape.
My hotel room is modest: two double beds pushed together for queen-sized effect. I'm looking forward to a good night's sleep tonight. The road is exhausting.
I took a walk earlier today from my hotel to the center of town. The city center orbits a magnificent cathedral. The story goes that during WWII, most of Cologne got absolutely destroyed except for this cathedral -- as if it were divinely protected.
Last time I was here, I took a picture of the cathedral at night.
All for now...
