Eau de Köln

In approximately 20 minutes, I'm leaving work. We've got another Witt Weekend planned, but this time it will NOT take place in Luther's Backyard. Instead, Pamela and I are descending upon Kaiserslautern to visit Bridget. Then the three of us (as well as Bridget's friend Jamie) will head to Köln, or Cologne, for all you non-German speakers out there.

The agenda includes:
the very famous Cathedral
the Gestapo museum
perhaps the Eau de Cologne house (yes, it was actually created there!) which has a SCENTED WALL O' COLOGNE -- oh the joy
and
my most favoritest thing
A CHOCOLATE MUSEUM!!!!!!

Yes, my friends, we are going to a chocolate museum. My Let's Go book has four words: Willy Wonka Made Real. There are mentions of a chocolate fountain that one can sample. I wonder if Johnny Depp will be there? (Or maybe Augustus Gloop, heh heh)

Unfortunately, it's -4 degrees C (or about 16 degrees F) and snowing there, but I'm bringing tights and two pairs of pants to layer. Plus I've got my lovely down coat that makes me sweat. Literally. I had to walk to the foreigner's office on Tuesday and I was sweating as I walked back.

Anyway, I won't be online for a few days because of it, but feel free to leave lovely comments nonetheless. Emails are also appreciated! Have a nice weekend, folks, I know I will!
