2 Worlds continued...

I rush out in the intermission to take a few World Cup pictures...
...but the concert was exciting, and because it was the last one of the season, we had a kind of party afterwards.
The viola group becomes affectionate...
..and the conductor gamely posed with his wife Posted by Picasa

Two Worlds

While the world cup was going on, fans of Germany, England, and Sweden milling around the streets (300,000 of them by some estimates)
(a sweet swedish fan)
and English...
we were meanwhile slaving away in the Philharmonie Posted by Picasa

Morning Coffee

Max and Franziska found this nice cafe just around the corner, very Sicilian. Too bad the weather in Cologne doesn't allow making this a habit. Posted by Picasa

Daily Photo...

Since I only write Blogs to procrastinate, at least I should put in a picture or two. It would be nice to have a kind of Daily Pic on the site.

Don't hold your breath though, I am pretty inconsistent, and anyhow will be on the road for most of the summer without a computer.

Cologne during World Cup Soccer

Evidently the World Cup has the salutory effect of reducing purchase inhibitions.
I am going to watch at least part of the Croatia-Brazil game tonight, I am hoping to enjoy seeing the Brazilian style, but am rooting for Croatia because I teach there every summer. Posted by Picasa
