Montag: Willkommen to Frankfurt“Gutenmorgen” was the first word I heard as I stepped off the plane at Frankfurt airport. The neat and clean city has a cosmopolitan and modern character, complete with block-shaped houses, tall, square-shaped steel buildings, and several banks and other offices. I crossed the famous 'Working Man' statue in downtown Frankfurt, which embodies the true nature of labour laws in the city.

As I was jet-lagged and famished after my flight, I decided it might be good idea to go for a ‘typically German’ feast at a fine-dining restaurant called Villa Merton. Tall waitresses smiled cheerfully, serving an assortment of wines—Swiss, German, red and white; appetizers followed by a nine-course meal— Rodgau Spargel mit Basilikum (rodgau asparagus with basil), Zweierlei vom Weidekalb (two kinds of willow calf), Ganseleber mit eingelegter Makrele (foie gras with pickled mackerel), potatoes, pork, Eisben, Sauerkraut and sausages. I topped it all off with some yummy peaches and cream pastries, and picked up some black forest at the Wirelberg Garten next door.
