flew with british airways, thanks to a deal via travbuddy, on the friday. flight was an hour and a half, and although a crap company its to short to complain much (though they were crap on the way back)

landed in the afternoon and took a taxi to my hotel - i recommend against it, its expensive as hell when the main train station  ended up being opposite. met my friends and went exploring.

frankfurt is rather dull. its pretty, nice tall buildings, lotsa open space for a city, but theres not much cracking. its population seemed mainly elderly and there wasnt anything screaming at you to explore, it mainly consisted of banks and cafes. but we found a pub that boasted it served the best pig knuckles for over 100 years - we werent to keen to test this theory-  looking to explore different beers in the biggest glasses possible - and sticking to schnitzel, which i found was just chicken escalope.

the evening consisted of going south of the river to an area boasting 40 odd bars, again german 'bars' arent what i would coin as a bar as they were small and smoky with old men sipping pints - these tend to be avoided in england :P - but we tried a few and found one which offered us free shots and tipped us to go to a club called cooky's. we had walked past in the day but took a taxi - if you can train/walk/bus do it, taxis cost the earth - and it was a fairly decent club and seemed to be where the youths hide.

the evening ended about 5am and we went to bed - of sorts.
