The approximately 110 meters long Kolk street is located on the western edge of Old Town Island, in the Marien Quartier. Der Kolk bears it’s name since 1334, when it  was mentioned for the first time under the name „documented with the name „To dem kolke“. In the Low German language, „Kolk“ meand a depression or rinsing in a stream. The stream was possibly referring to the one which also gave the name to the subsequent street Klein Kiesau. Over 2/3 of the historical substance of Kolk is still available, with a striking exception in the form of the unadorned side wall of a department store from the 1960s, neither in appearance nor in the dimensions in the context of the narrow medieval street blends.

This panorama was taken in Germany

This is an overview of Germany

Germany? Before the beginning there was Ginnungagap, an empty space of nothingness, filled with pure creative power. (Sort of like the inside of my head.)

And it ends with Ragnarok, the twilight of the Gods. In between is much fighting, betrayal and romance. Just as a good Godly story should be.

Heroes have their own graveyard called Valhalla. Unfortunately we cannot show you a panorama of it at this time, nor of the lovely Valkyries who are its escort service.

Hail Odin, wandering God wielding wisdom and wand! Hail Freya, hail Tyr, hail Thor!

Odin made the many lakes and the fish in them. In his traverses across the lands he caused there to be the Mulheim Bridge in Cologne, as did he make the Mercury fountain, Mercury being of his nature.

But it is to the mighty Thor that the Hammering Man gives service.

Between the time of the Nordic old ones and that of modern Frankfort there may have been a T.Rex or two on the scene. At least some mastodons for sure came through for lunch, then fell into tar pits to become fossils for us to find.

And there we must leave you, O my most pure and holy children.
