"Mannheim revisited" Mannheim by King_Golo

I went to Mannheim twice - once in 2006 to stop by at a Vietnamese friend's place for an afternoon, and the second time in 2008 when I visited yet another friend who works in Mannheim but lives in Heidelberg.
My first visit was overshadowed by continuous attempts of Mormons trying to convince us that we should join their religion, which was really annoying. Mormons in my hometown are a nice and friendly folk, but here they were getting really aggressive when we said that religion is not what we're in Mannheim for. Take it as a warning - according to my friend, they specifically focus on non-European looking people because those might be easier to convince. Apart from that, my friend and me walked through the grid-structured centre (which I found quite boring, to be honest (the centre, not the walk!)), and we had a refreshing drink at some bar.
My second visit, however, was completely different: No missionaries, better weather, great food in a restaurant, new shoes bought in Mannheim and other insights into the city. So my rather bad impression of 2006 turned to a quite good impression in 2008. Check out my tips for more!
