I've uploaded some pics to mparaz @ flickr. Apologies to the poor quality, I am no photographer.
Some stuff I've done:
walked around - it's nice to walk and you don't feel tired when it's cool;
tried the different urban transit systems - bus, Straßenbahn (streetcar) and Stadtbahn (light rail transit);
visited the Altstadt (old town) with the "world's largest pub" - streets and streets of outdoor pubs/restaurants;
visited the Königsallee - high end shopping avenue;
went up the Rheinturm (Rhine Tower), 168 meters above the Rhine with a great view of the city;
ate bratwurst mit brötchen (in bread), döner, schnitzel, turkey, fish & chips;
drank some Altbier (which had a nasty bitter aftertaste), gotta try others;
... and of course, work stuff, what I came here for!

WOW! nice trip you have! I miss Europe! :P
at may Zara pic pa tlaga ah to remind you of Chel! hehehe :P
I just had to show off Chel's favorite Zara...
the view from your hotel is nice. parang the buildings are so quaint! :)
Yup the residential areas are all like this. 3-4 story apartment buildings. No standalone houses to be seen.
Altbier - well, maybe you gotta find some "new" stock? hehe
I envy you! Musta naman the people, do they pretty much keep to themselves, are they nice? Or can you smell the racism from 50feet? Or wala naman? Depends daw where you are in Deutschland.
whut the... weird seeing you here! how do you know migs?
we don't actually know each other, i think (hehe), but we do comment on each other's blogs every now and then. lj friend ko rin sister nya. :)
this is LJ... free "add friend" love!
I just had the real Alt tonight at the oldest bar!
The people pretty much keep to themselves, but I don't encounter racism. Lots of Turkish and African immigrants here.
Oh that's good. A friend in Liepzig was talking about Neo-Nazi parades but then that was a year or so ago. I'm thinking of going to Germany and Austria one of these days... When I'm stinking rich... Wishful thinking, but still...
Have fun! And your pics ain't bad, just check your lighting (eg is the sun out? etc). Or have someone fix the contrast on photoshop, hehe. :)
Thanks! Still learning photography bit by little bit. The Neo-Nazis are stronger in the former East Germany since they had it harder over there.

Re: TEAM FLICKR!
yup our "photography" is just random bits and pieces... so flickr is good for sharing em. I'm not really interested in the "art."
ahh traveling i see. do you need an assistant, boss? ;)
Why am I hearing the "My Favorite Things" track of the Sound of Music while reading this post. Sarap naman ng work mo!
