After arriving in Germany, my friend Andre and I took a quick drive through Dusseldorf, before hitting the Autoban to Cologne. We visited the second largest church in the world, and went to a chocolate museum (where they had very interesting flavors, such as Jalapeno chocolate). They had chocolate everything´- cars, rabbits, even keyboards!!!We also walked along the Rhine, which was quite beautiful.
We then headed to Rothenburg o. d. Tauber, a medival city surrounded by walls. We did some sight-seeing, and ate a nice German dinner outside, right next to the Marketplaz. A bee kept harrassing us, which I believe to be the same bee that flew in my mouth when I was a baby, here to finish the job now that I have returned to Germany. After dinner, we took a tour of the city with the night watchman, who filled us in on the history of the centuries-old town, from the towns construction in 1299, through the black plague, the 30 years war, and WW2. The next day we visited a really cool medival torture museum (which had a water-boarding exhibit, like the US government uses). We also went to a christmas museum, which made me feel like a child again.
Here we are in Heidelberg, the city where I was born. We are in an internet cafe inside the old city, which has great classical architecture. The most popular part of town is near the university, where there are lots of cool stores and restaurants. Tomorrow we will visit the hospital where I was born.
Tomorrow we will head to Bielefeld, where Andre lives. We will stay with his parents for the night, and then head to Amsterdam to visit our friend Qingyi, where we are sure to have a good time.
The autobahn is quite exciting, it's like a rollercoaster. Andre drives like me.
Sorry for not including pictures, maybe on the next entry.
