Is he? No it's just a coincidence. I'm just using this avatar as Chelsea's awful form has made me miss him and his German pout.

Don't worry, he's been injured all season long so he wouldn't have been able to help out Chelsea anyway.

Thankfully they hardly ever sustained the kind of damage bigger cities suffered during WW2. That's why Germany is still full of half-timbered fairy tale towns.

Uh, snow in Görlitz. This is the Polish side. You can see the reconstruction efforts in the foreground.

Blame your ancestors or something. There are some nice places though, like Bath and...Bath.

It is a really nice city. Those spa towns like Bath, Wiesbaden, Karlsbad (Karlovy Vary) all look quite sexy.

Actually have you been to the UK?

Nope, only been to Wiesbaden. I have been to the UK though. Must have been back in 95. I remember Klinsmann was incredibly popular back then.

Unfortunately a lot of what has been lost was due to the Germans. Taking my home city of Bristol as an example, a large number of very attractive old buildings were bombed just like that in November 1940 and were replaced by 50s and 60s crap of that time. Thanks to the Germans, Bristol has lot a lot of its heritage.

Nevertheless, very nice tour of Germany in this thread! Great pictures.

True, WW2 was an absolute disaster. Both in human and architectural terms. If only we had seen this kind of destruction just before the arrival of the baroque era...

Anyway, the UK still has plenty of nice half-timbered towns as well though. Just need to market them more.

He did more for Anglo-German reconciliation than anybody else since WW2.
