Yet Another World Cup Post

Well, it seems that World Cup fever is everywhere - even with me a hardcore baseball adict. For the first time, I find myself checking the schedules and the progress. I haven't graduated to watching the games yet, but I am still following it. Partly because I'm in Germany this week (yet another committee meeting). Today was my day off and I went to Cologne to photograph the cathedral. (It rained. All day. Persistently. All my photos show dreay dull grey skies with a rather dark pollution stained cathedral in the foreground. Ho hum...) But, first thing I noticed upon walking out of the train station is that Brasil was in town! Go Brasil!!! They must have been on their way from Dortmund to Frankfurt. They gotta win - they've got the most outrageous fans! (And my pixels didn't even catch the people with the yellow green & blue hair!)
