We passed through Cologne, Germany.
We met Sensei Frank DeWalle.
He told us that the Cathedral of Cologne is a cathedral of lovers. People pray there to find romance. He visited, and so did his girlfriend, before they met.
After the cathedral, I walked around town.
I didn’t find a lover.

After heeding my call to take shape, he, the Dude, sent me to help his friend Bernie to wage peace around the world.
I feel that I’m not alone.
I believe there are others out there who want to Head for Peace.
Heard on the street:
- The first European street retreat took place in Cologne. They walked from here to Dusseldorf. That retreat led to the creation of a Paris soup kitchen.
