I’m not a football person at all but there is no way around the worlcup, so why not celebrate a little bit too. In my opinion, the whole thing has gotten a lot more relaxed since Germany had to go home and you could just spontaneously decide on which side you want to be with every match.
Today I watched the finale, France versus Croatia, while sitting in a very cosy, nice little spanish restaurant. There were like 10 tables outside with both fans of the french team and the croatian team. Everybody drinking wine and eating spanish tapas.
When you are in Cologne one day and visit the southern part of the city, don’t miss out on La Patata, where you can eat delicious tapas, fish plates and meat.
