Out and about in Bonn

Ryan finally gets some German food and beer.

overcast 65 °F

I was beginning to wonder if I would ever see anything in Bonn besides my apartment and the T-Mobile buildings. Today was the day. I went out after work with a former US T-Mobile co-worker that is now here in Germany. We wandered through the Bonn city center. What an amazing place!! It was blocks and blocks of town center with cobble stone streets, churches, shops, restaurants, and bars. For those who haven't been to Europe (like me) it was exactly what I pictured in my head as a town center. Weather today was warm and there were a lot of people out roaming the streets.

David took me on a tour of the town center and showed me the train and bus stations near the square. After wandering through the shops and bakeries, we decided it was timer for a few beers and some good German food. We stopped at a popular beer haus and feasted. We both had Schnitzel, spaetzle, and beer. It was exactly what I was looking for on my first day out on the town. It was great to hang out with David and get his insight into life in Germany as an American.

I am looking forward to planning my first weekend trip soon, now that I am getting settled in.

Off to bed now.

Till next time.
