Happy Chocolate Easter

There are all sorts of museums all over the world, and in Cologne there is one for chocolate.

This time of year a big brother bunny, in what looks like golden foil, poses majestically above the entrance. Inside you find smaller, more common versions.

It is a chocolate heaven on earth for chocoholics. They even have a display of a chocolate waterfall behind bullet-proof glass(?), otherwise people might have been too tempted to sample it I guess.

We didn’t have time to go through the museum itself, but we were happy just to visit the shop and make some modest purchases. Is that cheating?

LadyFi - How about becoming live-in staff? Glad påsk! (You are right. It should be lower case "p"! ;-) )
