Our day today consisted of a guided tour around the old city of Dusseldorf. We saw the longest pub and saw other buildings of historical significance. There was an amazing bakery, I didn't know there was so many ways with flour & water! We went into a knife shop where Gary picked out a pocket knife after we both decided the price was 32.00 euros - ...
... trade. We found a lovely seafood restaurant and ate the local fare while people watching. Saw many interesting sights and made lots of observations e.g. everyone uses a bike except young males, Germans are fascinated by handbag dogs, the only people in Dusseldorf who wear shorts in summer other than Eric are joggers, and lots of older couples dress similarly (that was scary!)

Tonights dinner was a special gala dinner with everyone all dressed up. Dinner was as usual very yummy, but the after dinner entertainment was a treat. The crew performed a show for us all.

Off to bed with a cuppa and some cruising to Amsterdam.
Goodnight from Avalon Felicity.
