Claudius Therme at Cologne

Pumpkin and I planned to visit this spa but when we got there, time was tight .. so we decided not to. hmmmmmm… One of the reasons was we looked into the pool by the entrance. it felt like a community play ground; just not very appetizing.

Bockenheimer Landstraße

Bockenheimer Landstraße or landstrasse is a major boulevard in Frankfurt. Its westend runs from the opera place (the former Bockenheimer gate) to the Bockenheimer control room (Warte), into the botanic palm garden. This about a mile long blvd is dotted with numerous banks, name brand companies and as well as consulates. The former USA Consulate in the 70s had seen few demonstrations against the Vietnam war.
