Going home for Christmas

  • 7h and 34 minutes by train
  • Wagenstandsanzeiger not in Brussels, but in Cologne
  • Hoarfrost (Raureif, givre) aka Puderzuckerlandschaft
  • Sitting in the bookshop while waiting for my train
  • Having a few minutes in the bright cold sun before leaving Cologne
  • Having an Ersatzzug instead of my ICE
  • Forming a Notgemeinschaft with the people in my Abteil – charing Christmas cookies
  • Making nasty comments about the Deutsche Bahn
  • Enjoying the voices announcing the trains, especially that the train in Hanover waits for me
  • Taking the time of reading Die Zeit
It’s kitschy, it’s beautiful, it’s Christmas.
