Notes from Germany

I am an American expat living in Germany. It's a far away land on the other side of the ocean. It's interesting and often weird here. If you read this and want to comment then email me at nate(the at symbol) If you find any spelling or grammar mistakes, you can keep them.

Rĝd Grĝd Med Flĝde

We arrived back from Copenhagen last night at about half past midnight. If you get a chance to visit, I highly recommend it. It's so choice. Some observations...

There is also a city-bike program there where you can pick up a bike at a designated points in the city. In principal it sounds like a great idea. The problem is that most of the bikes were falling apart or missing key components like wheels or seats. It took us a 2 days to find one that wouldn't kill its rider. Then M rode that all over till she found another. Even though they both had fucked up chains/pedals/sprockets/brakes, it sure beat walking.

Other highlights included:

More to come...
