Aerial image of Koln at blue hour.
Here is a shot of the Cathedral in Cologne a few hours before the end of 2018. One of the good things about being in Europe is easy access to history.
In this case, it is a sad part of our history: that cathedral is a reminder of how destructive the second world war was. This was the only building standing after 4 years of heavy bombarding. Nearly 300 raids occurred during that period with 35ooo tons of bombs dropped on the city, hoping to damage German morale.
The insanity of such a plan makes me speechless. Everyone knows that if you want to demoralize German, you just have to talk to them about the 2018 world cup… 😜
