Sweet Home Chicago

2018-06-09 Miscellaneous

Chicago is known for skyscrapers left and right of the Chicago river, the worldwide best blues music (everybody should know the Blues Brothers), deep dish pizza and 1920s gangsters like Al Capone. Even today the crime rate is very high. After 12 shootings in the last night, I stopped counting news reports on TV during breakfast. Maybe that’s the reason why Chicago became a film location for Batman Begins and the Last Knight. I had just one day in Chicago.Read More

Roads of Vietnam

Roads in Vietnam are very strange if you come from a western country and have never been in South-East-Asia before. Thousands of scooters and motorbikes thrust their way through the streets and at busy times also through the walkways. It is loud and the air smells of twin-stroke engines. Waiting for a gap to cross a street is almost hopeless. But if you have the courage to walk straight through the traffic, you will imagine the traffic flowing around youRead More

Beside the Photokina, I visited the city centre of Cologne. The Cologne Cathedral is the second tallest in the world and one of the biggest GothicRead More
