Walkabout 2016 Day 10 : Auchentoshan

Walkabout 2016 : Day 1 Düsseldorf

Walkabout16d1The first day of my (more than likely) last trip to the ‘dorf began, as most trips to the ‘dorf began, with a delicious pork sandwich at Schweine Janes.  The ending was a spectacular light show atop the Rheinturm;
