Day 4 (June 11th)

Chilling in Cologne

sunny 0 °F

P1010043.JPGWe traveled together the next day to Cologne via the trains. Some of the same problems getting out of our small town outside of Frankfurt (a bit worse because it was a Sunday), but arrived in Cologne in plenty of time. There we navigate through the sea of people, several parties and twists and turns to get to the hotel – very near the WM fan fest (official viewing party).
It was a good day of just seeing the fans, games, and a bit of the town. We met some nice people from all around – Germany, Iran, Ireland, etc – even though I was (cough, unknowingly) supporting the Holland team.
P1010007.JPGPhil was sporting his FC Dallas jersey – we had a bet that he’d be the only one with that shirt – we lost. As we were watching the Mexico/Iran game at the Fan Fest, the other FC Dallas jersey walked right up next to us. We couldn’t believe it. It was very funny. We quickly realized that we were pulling for different teams though when Mexico scored. However, when Iran quickly answered, it confirmed that there were more Iran fans there than Mexico – it was a good time.

So who were the radical-Islamic sympathizers? I'm betting that it WASN'T Dean...

Any brothel stories? Save the personal ones, just stories in general.

...and there's a bunch of Sherlocks patrons waiting to hear about this manly skirt man in a skirt when you get back, Dean.

Have fun for all of us stuck in the states.

No brothel stories. Some Germans told us we should check it out, but we've decided stick with soccer parties and discotecs. All's good here, not getting a lot of sleep, but meeting people from freakin everywhere. Some girls, mostly guys. There have been bare breasts, but nothing liek Mardi Gras...yet. The US played much better against Italy than the Czech Rep so they're still in it, but they must beat Ghana. If they win against Ghana, we should end up in second place and advance to the Round of 16. Mostly likely, we would play Brazil, the tourny favorite, but they haven't looked so good yet.

Take care.
