We started our visit to Cologne with an excursion downtown. As with many such excursions, we had to visit the local cathedral.

After the planned excursion, I walked back into town on my own.

I walked into an anti- Turkey protest, in which they were protesting what the Turkish government had been doing to academics in Turkey.  I had a nice conversation with a young Turkish woman who was studying English literature about the issue.


Finally I wandered through a street fair on the banks of the Rhine River.

This was also a family trip.  I saw a boat named after my daughter.


And another one named after my wife’s family.

That evening, I convinced my wife to go out for dinner at a beer house, followed by visits to several other beer houses. My wife, the confirmed Merlot drinking, even found the beer in Cologne to be palatable.
