Argh! Bloody german keyboards, just managed to lose everything I´d just written ... So, yes, I am in Germany! It#s all going well so far, except that I grossly underestimated how difficult it#d be finding a room... everywhere appears to be heaving! I had to try 3 or 4 hotels in Düsseldorf before I was successful. Of course, having been bitten, I#m now being much more careful. I#m in a hostel in Cologne at the moment, it#s pretty nice except for the loud drum n bass they#re playing in reception. Free internets though, very welcome. The cathedral is right next to the station and by god is that thing enormous! It#s only around the corner from here so I#m gonna have a look around before it gets dark. Hope everyone is well!
