If you have at least five minutes between trains at Koln’s main station, you’re the biggest of fools if you don’t step out, for just a moment, to breathe in the enormous Kölner Dom that towers over the area. It snapped me right out of my post-nap stupor. It always does. It took about 600 years to build, was once the tallest building in the world, and survived 14 aerial bombs during WWII.
And since there’s about 10 seconds left in this advisory, I just have to add that there indeed was a woman in white glancing down from the clouds.
