Monday morning we had breakfast at Ms. Biester's with Sebastian, then headed for the bus and train with Preceptor Nic. 

Once we arrived in Cologne, we stopped at a McDonald's for lunch and then headed to the Deutscher Hausarzteverband for a meeting with Ulrich Weigeldt.  He is a general practitioner and elected representative and chairman of this organization.

Weigeldt shared with us a presentation about strengthening primary care through contracts, using risk adjustment diagnoses for patients who need specialty care, and other topics regarding healthcare. 

After our visit, Nic took us into the city center of Cologne.  He led us on a "tour" of the Dom (Cologne's cathedral).

Nic was handed a letter explaining how he can't talk to a group while inside the church, unless he becomes an official tour guide

The group scattered a bit; Nic led Sarah, Traci and I up the Dom to show us the city from up high!

Building progression of the Dom

533 steps of dizzying fun

Yes, the bell rang and scared the crap out of us

Props to Nic for this pic

We all met up at a brewery for some beer , then headed back on the train for dinner at The Buergerstube.
