euro trip part III

Dusseldorf. (yes, there are still more to come)


image
in the brussels train station on my way back to germany i spotted this. i am convinced it is the world's largest vending machine. you could buy anything from beer and cheese to toilet paper and pepto-bismol.

image
we enjoyed such a beautiful sunny day, i'm not sure why Christoph was still wearing his jacket

image
i wonder what the inside of this place looks like

image
we went up this tower, all the while in the elevator i was being solicited to be a slave wife by a beer breathed indian man

image
you get great views because of the window angles

image
neat

image
but i was surprised to see sheep in the middle of the city

image
i really want this knife stand

image
to go with this awesome sink

image
wonderful old town square

image
golf clubs in the recyle bin?

image
fooooooooooooore!

image
really, i wasn't looking for it, it found me

image
remember that candy lipstick?

green machine

I dropped off my bike yesterday morning to get repairs. Breaks were screwed, shifter was broke and my back wheel was bent. I just got the call that she'll be ready for pick up after 5 today! She's a jem and I can't wait to start riding to work again. The guys at the shop were impressed with her, guess it's been a long while since they've seen a classic schwinn. Now the weather just has to stay cooperative :)

p.s. more europe photos tomorrow

euro trip part II

In this cluster...Koln, Brussles and some place in the Netherlands.


image
took the train from weisbaden to koln

image
beautiful scenery all the way

image
i stayed with my friend elisa

image
the most famous cathedral in germany, dom zu koln

image
this train station vending machine was full of printer cartridges, just in case you REALLY HAVE TO HAVE ONE RIGHT NOW!

image
i also met up with my friend christoph and the first thing i did when we stopped to have a beer was knock over this cafe table and all the chairs and everything on it....charming and classy

image
lots of narrow winding streets in the netherlands, it was almost a bit creepy, especially once i can show you a video i took while there

image
even the mannequins are creepy

image
everybody, and i mean everybody, rides bikes there

image
probably to work off all these fries- they are everywhere


i took another train to brussles but was never able to contact my friends

image
i had to look up a youth hostel but they were full...this is me waiting and wondering if i'll have to sleep in the train station or get lucky and snag someone's cancellation

image
even if i had to sleep in the train station it would have been kosher cuz i'm cool like 'danger girl'

image
but i got lucky and then ended up with this lovely view

image
i checked out the atom thingy

image
which i think looks cooler at night with a little play on the camera

image
and just for fun

home

Back in the US of A. I have plenty of pics, but am drowning in work. That stupid bitch (at work) that has caused me so much grief has done even more damage while I was gone. I didn't think it was possible. People were taking bets as to how long she would last if she walked in the office before I headbutt her. Details later. Ciao!

Ciao, LC

Sunshine, how I missed thee.
