Two glasses of wine, a delicious wee meal, a serving of Baileys and half a Zopetal later and I greet the 23rd of October on a new continent. Excellent steering Lufthansa!
Guten Tag Frankfurt! You and me are going to get a little acquainted in the next eleven hours!
An interesting mix of old and new.
It doesn’t feel extremely old.. the way Rome or even Potosi does, with all their tight, wind-y, streets. This city accommodates cars just fine, though I admit there were a lot of bikes about.
Essentially I just did a lot of walking. Their train system was easy to navigate > four stops bw downtown and the airport. They charged entrance fees for all their churches and I wasn’t carrying any Euros so I contented myself with eyeing the outsides of everything. Moseyed into a few shops.. everything seemed a bit more expensive than back home. There was ample evidence of Frankfurt being an excellent summer destination. They’ve really made the most of their River frontage and there were many well-situated remains of riverside cafes and such.
Anyhow.. boarding for the third last flight of the journey. Sounds like it’s a full flight – 10.5hrs YAY!
