The Pope Slept Here

I mentioned the other day that a Doritos chip resembling the Pope's hat was auctioned last month on eBay for $1,209. Today I learned that the pope's old apartment in Bonn is listed on German eBay.
Also featured on the site is a copy of a page from a 1962 phone directory, listing a Joseph Ratzinger at the address of the apartment house, "Wurzerstrasse 11" in Bad Godesberg, which is now part of greater Bonn. The pope is said to have lived there from July 1959 to May 1963 when he was a professor at the University of Bonn.
