Wednesday, 9 August, 2017 – weather: grey, again
Lazy for me any way. For some reason we are up early and have to wait for breakfast. It was worth the wait.
We are parked near Cologne (Koln). There is a walking tour of Cologne which Julie goes on but I stay back on the boat. Some of her photos.
In the mean time, a girl comes around and informs us that there is another event on board that had not been mentioned. It is a lesson in taste and aromas.
Our ship proceeds up the Rhine to our next pick up place. The buses from the Cologne tours are there waiting for us.
Then it was pretty much straight to lunch downstairs,
The plan for this afternoon / evening is to go to Marksburg Castle for tour, food and entertainment. I decide that I do not want to go on a 90 minute bus trip so stay back as does Julie for the same reason. All in all around 25 passengers stay behind and enjoy the cruise down the river.
One good point about this is that the meal is ala carte rather than the frequent smorgasbord.
The main body of troops gets back around 11:15 and Don Roberto starts playing music. I stay up too late until after midnight.
