Coolest Subways

Okay so Munich wins whatever award they give out for having the coolest subways. If I was naming them I'd call them "Subbys." The whole subway line is one long car with the accordion things connecting the different cars like in the mega buses. The effect is weird because subconsciously you know that subway cars are individual so you think it is a mirror trick at first making it appear to connect all the way. In practical use, it keeps them from over crowding because the flow is easy from one to the other. Sorry I didn't think to get a picture of it.

What I did think to get a picture of:


Can you see that? It is blue sky which means the sun came out. After a week of no returned, and we couldn't be happier. To celebrate we laid in a park-yes still in our fleeces, but there was sun on our faces so that is all that counts.

We also wanted to give you just a sense of our couchhost flat where we stayed. They are subletting from the doctor whom they've never seen in the 6 months they have stayed there. All of the rooms were pink and there was all kinds of animal print everywhere. They were joking that she must like Vegas and when they opened the bathroom door, we knew they weren't kidding.

This picture doesn't quite do it justice, but can you imagine waking up to this bathroom. Who needs coffee when you have this visual jolt every morning?

I have been checking your blog daily. It is great to hear how things are going and who you would give the "subby" too. I would expect the Germans to be contenders. People throw the term "German Engineering" around like they are a country of geniuses. Who knows- next thing you know you will be redoing your kitchen in gold :)
