Christine in her bedroom.

Christine and I spent the day walking around the centre of Trier, which I found quite beautif with its variously-coloured old buildings.

We shopped at yet another H&M and other stores. I even found the shoes I bought a week earlier in Italy on sale for 9 euros (urgh!!). We also visited some of the city's Roman ruins, including the Porta Nigra, and two churches. The Konstantin Basilika is apparently the first church to exist without pillars to hold up the roof.

Christine tooke me for lunch to a gorgeous cafe (see review) that I'm sure would fit in perfectly in Melbourne. I particularly loved the rows decorated coffee cups mounted on the wall.

Last stop was the Karl Marx Haus, his birthplace. It was annoying that the museum was only in German, but I managed to get hold of an English audio so that I could understand some of the history. It seems Communism didn't work in Germany, like it did in Russia, because there wasn't a defined working class or sense of class consciousness in Germany at the time.

I miss H&M...They just opened one up in San Francisco, but I hear the prices are a lot more expensive...
