My wife and son came with me to EntwicklerCamp 2009, but first we visited Cologne (or Köln, as they say it).  Along with the wonderful cathedral (Kölner Dom), we saw various museums, and finally visited a sewer - one built by the Romans when Cologne was a major city on the border of the Roman Empire sixteen hundred years ago.  Here is the photographics evidence:

Roman sewer

Do I know how to show a lady a special time or what?

While I have my suspicions that this is merely an image touched up in Photoshop to make it appear that the lady agreed to go... and possibly to make yourself appear taller, I still admire the hard work and artistic skill it must have required. I remain confident that requesting a lady travel abroad to see a sewer, and actually getting her to go, are two entirely different skills, and your photographic evidence doesn't necessarily convince me that you managed the latter.
