Up to the top of the tower

Tuesday, February 25, 2014
Cologne, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany
The elderly couple managed to climb 533 steps to the top of Cologne Cathedral this morning so despite the adverse comments yesterday we are not quite dead yet.

A very tiring day spent wandering round Cologne, quite a nice city with lots of squares and car free zones . Most of the buildings are new on account of some work done by the British in 1944. After the cathedral and a huge German lunch of ham hock, a chunk of meat about the size of a rugby ball, we struggled round the main art gallery which has a fine collection of Picasso's and Wahol paintings but I am afraid we lowered the tone by doing a Harry Worth with one of the exhibits. If you don't know who Harry Worth is ask you dad (or look at http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=nIPihrhzr-U) I will add the picture of this exploit tomorrow.
Tonight we are on the sleeper to Warsaw
