Köln

Our first city was Köln. We thought that it is a small city but it is a thousand times more complicated than Hildesheim. Our highlights of the city:
   - Dom
   - Schokoladen Museum
   - The Love Bridge (Not too sure about the name)
   - Ludwig Museum
       > The largest contemporary museum I've ever been in! The collection is huge, and contemporary. I like.
Dita guided us through the city. We found a Muji in the city! We had a nice Pad Thai dinner in Rudolfplatz. Our plan was to catch the last train from Köln to Düren. But oh boy, we were fooled by the punctual Germans. We got to the train's door 30 seconds before the train departed, it wouldn't open, causing us to stay there for another hour. An old guy, who turned out to be a farmer, offered us a bag of tomatoes, perhaps because of the despair on our face. We were sleeping hopelessly in our first night at Düren's Hauptbahnhof to catch the first night bus to Jülich. Too much excitement in the first day was not good. It ended up with a very good sleep. Questioning ourselves, do we want to continue our journey?
