Last day of Venice and Cologne

Finished up in Venice, took a train to Munich, then another one here to Cologne. The last two posts have been fairly detailed as to my plans, so right to the pics then.


The last in Venice was partially spent on Lido Island, which is this pretty little island that's all beach.
Then went back to Venice proper, and to St. Mark's Basilica.

The original horses. The one's outside are replicas.
View from the top of St. Mark's.

Inside the Basilica. Tremendous mural work.
Unrelated, just pretty.
This was cool. Random Italian kids playing soccer in some yard.
Goodnight and goodbye Venice

11:00ish overnight train on the way to Munich. Wasn't terrible, and got there about six in the morning. Had a few hours to walk around and explore before I went to Cologne.Brewery
Doner kebab is a big deal in Germany
On the train to Colgone. Some guy bust out his guitar and played the blues for an hour.

And then I got to Cologne. The first thing you see when you walk out of the train station is this giant cathedral.
The Rhine RiverThis is Andy and me sitting down for some real German food.
Didn't last long
Cologne's an all around nice city.
We went out the past two nights, freaking hard. The Germans don't mess around with their weekends. Not too many pictures from those nights, you'll just have to take my word for it. Might find one or two in the back of my camera though. Will have to take a look tomorrow.

Am off to Amsterdam in an hour. Wish me luck!
