I am back – in time for ‘Weiberfastnacht’

At last – after a long 5 months I am back on screen! I feel better and my Doctor promised that I will be completely ok again in another 5 months. But for now, that’s enough talking about me in connection with this (stupid) bathroom accident.

But somehow I have not completely got back into my daily routine as yet – or I would not have forgotten that in Germany, especially in my part of the world in Bonn/Cologne, we have entered the craziest few days of the year – the Carnival Season. So, when I switched on my TV this afternoon to see the German news on Deutsche Welle, I found out, that today is “Weiberfastnacht” in Bonn/Cologne. My urgent telephone call to the Cologne Tourism Office did not bring any result – everybody!! is out on the streets celebrating.

Why not come and look at this video on YouTube (with my thanks) – it’s in English! – It will introduce you to our Carnival. Believe me; nowhere do Germans celebrate their carnival as enthusiastically as in the Rhineland, in beautiful Cologne. And today, Thursday, we get our chance to take charge – it’s women’s day – Weiberfastnacht!

Have fun, come back for more this week-end and until then I leave you with our ‘battlecry’ –  “KOELLE ALAAF”.
