Enjoying Germany

I have spent my last week with Kerstin in Dortmund, Germany. Although it is not the most beautiful of cities, being quite industrial in a “Sheffield kind of way”, it does have its own charms. I like how many of the newer buildings sit quite comfortably with the older buildings that survived the bombs during World War II. It feels open and clean and had a nice cafe culture going on. The public transport is fantastic with trams, tube and great cheap, fast trains running between the surrounding cities such as Essen, Düsseldorf and Köln.

Anyway, I am back next week to finally start some work. I am looking forward to getting my teeth into something now. I also heard from Tim, now in Rio and lording it up. He talked about sunshine, sitting on the beach, drinking cold beers in the sun and such like.
