Eben fuhr hier in der Innenstadt ein sehr großes E-Auto von so einem neuen Ridesharing-Dienst im Schrittempo (weil Stau) vorbei, saß 1 Business-Typ drin. Das ist die Zukunft!

In rund drei Stunden werde ich die Elbe wiedersehen: und zwar in Hamburg!

Just love how English-language media is obsessing about a difference of opinion during negotiations among the 27 while neglecting to mention THAT THEY ALL AGREED ON A JOINT POSITION AT THE END AND THEN PROCEEDED TO DICTATE TERMS TO THE UK.

I may be wrong here, but I'm sure I've been taking the 12:25 from Brussels-Midi to Germany for several years now.

Mini-Sonnenfinsternis beim . Aber sonst bringt die Veranstaltung ja eher Licht ins Dunkle.

I bet that not-actually-English anglicism 'Shitstorm' was in there at least once!

Good to see giving my avian namesakes the increased exposure they so richly deserve.

Sonst kommen ja die (selbstverständlich nett teetrinkended) enforcement officers vom (ach so freundlichen) immigration service, um Johnny Foreigner zu zeigen, wofür das Great British Public am 23. Juni 2016 gestimmt hat...

"Unter dem Titel 'I Travel for…' sollen Reisende aus europäischen Ländern motiviert werden, nach Großbritannien zu kommen..." LOL.

A friend of mine once got challenged to a battle rap in the U1. We were in the (unofficial) smoking car at the rear.

Leute im Bus reden übers Autoabschaffen, doch irgendwann kommt natürlich: "Aber was machen wir mit den Sprudelkisten?!" Kann es vielleicht sein, dass die Deutschen so autofixiert sind, weil sie so sprudelfixiert sind? Alle anderen Europäer trinken ja einfach Leitungswasser.

Always a pleasure, never a chore! (And yes, I did actually catch the train in the end, but I feel a chicken-and-egg question may be developing with regard to my Eurostar travel these days.)
