Rhine Cruise: Rick Steves "Don't Bother" #3 Mainz and #4 Rudesheim

About 80% of Mainz was destroyed during WWII, so much of the city is new. 
But the Mainz Cathedral still stands!

The Gutenberg Museum was founded in 1900 and we were treated to a demonstration about how printing was done at the time of Johannes Gutenberg. The museum also owns two Gutenberg bibles from the mid-15th century.

In Rudesheim, we took a cable car with open side during a torrential downpour. Richard got drenched and opted to warm up on the ship. I opted to warm up with the local coffee laced with brandy and topped with whipped cream and chocolate while listening to live local music.
