Der Kölner Dom (Cologne Cathedral) is a Roman Catholic church in Köln (Cologne), Central-Western Germany. It’s a renowned monument of German Catholicism and Gothic architecture and a World Heritage Site. It is also Germany’s most visited landmark, attracting an average of 20,000 people a day. Construction commenced in 1248 and was halted in 1473, leaving it unfinished. Work restarted in the 19th century and was completed, to the original plan, in 1880. The cathedral is the largest Gothic church in Northern Europe and has the 2nd-tallest spires (after Ulm Minster, also in Germany). Its 2 huge spires give it the largest façade of any church in the world. The choir has the largest height to width ratio, 3.6:1, of any medieval church. Cologne’s medieval builders had planned a grand structure to house the reliquary of the Three Kings and fit its role as a place of worship for the Holy Roman Emperor. The cathedral suffered 14 hits by aerial bombs during WW2. It did not collapse, but stood tall in an otherwise flattened city.

Fun fact: My fat ass nearly died here in high school.

Die Friedrichstraße is a main culture and shopping street in Central Berlin, forming the core of the Friedrichstadt neighborhood. It runs from the old Mitte district to the Hallesches Tor in Kreuzberg. This downtown area is known for its posh real estate market and the campus of the Hertie School of Governance. It forms important junctions with the east-west axes, such as Leipziger Straße and Unter den Linden. The U6 subway line runs here. In the Cold War era, it was bisected by the Berlin Wall and was the location of Checkpoint Charlie. Panorama:

Last time I was in Berlin, I stayed at a hostel right off Friedrichstraße. Such a great part of town.

Is that Mrs. Obama? It’s funny no matter who it is, but even funnier if it’s the FLOTUS.

Tyson will attack you if you come within a two-mile stretch of the Grand Union Canal in Bugbrooke, Northamptonshire. Joe Davies learned this the hard way and capsized.

Honestly, the big reveal at the end of this movie is better than the big reveal at the end of Citizen Kane.
