Being a tourist

I’ve now been to Germany for a week, and I’ve had the chance of being a tourist in the evenings and in the weekend. There’s one thing that wasn’t like I thought it would be with the Germans. They say hello to each other even if they don’t know each other. It’s pretty weird, but also nice. In Norway, if you do that, people would think you were either a mental patient, or you were having a bachelor party.

So, since Jon Kristian likes to sleep a couple of more hours in the weekends, I’ve been walking all over Bad Godesberg (which is the southern suburb of Bonn). The centrum is bit smaller than Haugesund. When Jon Kristian got up we went to his favorite bakery, and then we left for Cologne (Köln). The first thing we noticed was the BIG cathedral. It was really tall! Actually, between 1880 and 1884, it was the tallest building in the world. I’m not a religious person, but I do appreciate architecture, and especially gothic architecture! After a couple of hours of walking around Köln, we went down to the Rhine to have a beer. Of course, Gaffel Kölsch 🙂 There we saw this amazing "sport" called Bier Biking. It’s basically 14 guys sitting on a vehicle, cycling and drinkning beer. They were also singing drinking songs etc. Was pretty funny to watch!
