Mini car, for 2800Euros with 48,000km on it. Considering it, along with others.
It's not fancy but it would be good enough to get around for now and if I found my "dream car" I could buy it later on at a more leisurely pace. I think the cold winter weather is going to be prohibitive to bicycling to work from town even.
Onto the more exciting photodocumentation:
My Very First Volksmarch.
What is a Volksmarch? It's a dying pasttime of German folks- walking clubs arrange walks all over the country (and other countries) of varying lengths where you can drink beer and eat or just do the walk. Today I went with Ryan from Arizona, who works in the administrative building with Bernie. We did the 20km walk, through the German countryside and towns. It was a perfect fall day for it, with just a light mist of rain at the end of our walk.
The first checkpoint- at each station, you have to get your little card stamped to prove that you did the whole walk, then can keep track of it in a booklet.
Some German people doing the walk. They sure are fit compared to Americans.
Shed on our walk. With a crop I don't know!
Our first split.
The guy who tells you which way in case you can't read I guess. He didn't seem to want his picture taken.
More Germans walking. With nice vines on the side.
They are serious with their solar panels here!
A German hunting tower. Ryan said that they are only allowed to hunt from these towers- no on the ground hunting.
