Cologne here we come!

One of the best weeks of my life was when the "Gay Games" were held in Amsterdam back in 1998. It was the world upside-down with gays being in the majority almost everywhere in the city, a great and liberal atmosphere, everybody in the mood for love and friendship - in short: paradise.
Some of my friends were so enamored with the Gay Games that they flew to Sydney in 2002 and to Chicago in 2006 to re-live the experience. I didn't do that, but now that the Gay Games are just a 2.5 hour train ride away I decided to see if the atmosphere of friendship and love can be re-created in Cologne. At least 20 friends from Amsterdam will be going so if nothing else, we will have a nice weekend partying with the Germans.
