The respectable bodega beer selection we sampled between

breweries and back at the hotel:

Erdinger Weißbier, Gatz Altbier, Warsteiner Premium Verum,

Paulaner Hefe-Weißbier (Dunkel, Naturtrüb), König Pilsner,

Veltins Pilsner, Schlössher (“Das Alt” or “Thee Alt/Old”)

 

Last dinner meal in Europe, we stumbled into a Chinese restaurant,
ordered more takeout food than we could possibly eat,and wondered
where our former traveling companions were dining instead of helping us finish the mess.

Best and most reasonably priced of all the Chinese food we ate in Europe.

Fourth of July and our first ever Independence Day away from the U.S.A.

Evening came without a firework in the sky over leisurely Düsseldorf.
