We did the touristy thing with Yvonne and Erwin, climbing the spire of the Dom (cathedral) and wandering the city's squares, where we encountered many groups of fans from various countries, England being the most well represented. Later that evening, we went to a bar and watched the USA Italy game on an outdoor TV.
