From Various old how cute is this kid??!!
From Berlin In Berlin. Heard great things about Berlin before I went. Everyone was right. A wonderful town to go hang out in, and tons of stuff to see.
I am a big fan of Germany and love pretty much every part of it I have been to, from Oktoberfest in Munich to Tempelhof Airport in Berlin. I love the people, the sights… and the beer. From Munich Beer please!
From Dresden A town almost entirely destroyed by some massive fire bombing in WWII (and made famous by Kurt Vonegut). It is an incredibly beautiful city.
From Bern, Switzerland. I probably should look up the meaning behind it, but I sort of prefer not knowing at all. And laughing…. What it particularly odd is how “civilized” Switzerland is perceived to be. Such an odd place to see something like this. Europe does provide some occasionally truly […]

Finish in the dark? Get up off the pot, open the stall door and wave a hand out there in the hope of getting a light back on? Wait for someone else to come in? I’m gunna leave the resolution a mystery, but I did make it back to the table, alive, well and otherwise ok. And was a little less certain about German ingenuity.
I forget the exact saying, but something along the lines of “running on time like a German train.” Nothing could be closer to the truth.
