Cyane and Alan entered into Germany at Aachen. The city has great symbolic significance, going back to the time of Charlemagne. Hitler chose it for major operations. Here, Cyane stands in front of the door of the Rat Haus-City Hall.
The Aachen cathedral is imposing and beautiful. Happily, it survived the war. See new gargoyle added below.
German yard and garden. German cycling tour group, out even in the rain. Sophie stopped to help us figure out the way into Köln.
