Starts with a C, and is spelled kinda like a deli meat.
Out of curiosity, which clue provided the ah-ha moment?
I actually didn’t know who that was, but when I hovered over the photo, it said that it was Paco.png. So then I googled “Paco” on Google image search and discovered who it was and that he was famous for cologne.
I was a little confused with Cologne, though, because I went to the maps first and was looking for umlauts and Cologne doesn’t have one. Google Maps shows a lot of German city names with umlauts, so I just assumed that all of the cities were already in German. However, I should have noticed that Munich was labeled as “Munich” and not “Munchen”. The trick for the future is to use http://www.google.de/maps instead. If I had, I probably would have gotten it a little quicker, because I would have seen Koln on the map near Dusseldorf, and on the Rhein River.
Extra fun fact: Movement four of Schumann’s 3rd symphony was inspired by the cathedral in Cologne.
