Travel and Tourism, Vacation Guide
|This part of the trip went fairly fast. Trains and ferries in cool weather.
I spent two nights in Cologne, Germany.
|Scandinavia went by fairly quickly. I took the train on
April 13 from St. Petersburg to Helsinki, Finland. The same day I took the
ferry to Stockholm. This was followed by trains and ferries to Germany.|
I noticed a lot of big baby carriages and a lot of clean streets. I took this photo in Stockholm.
|I spent a weekend in Cologne, Germany. I have been
having good luck at tourist reservation offices. In this case they found me a
5-star hotel at a 2-star price. Hotel Savoy was a great place to rest and
Cologne is dominated by its great 'Dom' Cathedral. The first two photos are a view from the train station and a view inside the church.
|The next two pictures show the cathedral plaza plus a view
of the cathedral and station from the hotel.|
|I think that Freud might have said that "Sometimes a cigar is
just a cigar and sometimes a wiener is just a wurst" -- or words with a similar meaning.|
|The last two photos were taken in the Cologne train
station. The girl is handing out sample "filtered small cigars" while
the police, dressed in attractive green, are scaring people with their dog.|
