Bona’me Restaurant & Lounge….

After climbing the stairs at the Cologne Cathedral we all had worked up an appetite and we decided to finish our day by checking out Bona’me by Rhine river.

It’s great, just don’t lose your card like I did at Vapiano, a similar style restaurant we visited during our trip.

We decided to take a look inside and eventually get ready to climb the 533 steps all the way up to the viewing platform (322 ft) above the ground to take a better view of the city.

You have unprotected sense with a strange person you might as well get it on with a mass murderer. I think AIDS have been around for such a long time that it does not need sugarcoating anymore. The more clear the message is the better it would be understood. I happen to dig a little deeper and found some interesting reactions to the video, some really hated and other thought it’s just another ad that falls on dead ears. I personally thought it was an interesting ad. …
