Black Forest Folk.











German highways don't just look immaculate when compared to the Bud can-strewn Adopt-a-Highways of the States and the styrofoam/cig butt/dead body/tea bottle graveyard roadsides of Asia, they are literally free of litter. I was looking. Not one piece of litter on the Schwarzwald Hauptstraße shoulders.




Souvenir plaques for your walkin' staff.

Woodruff: Waldmeister




All these pics are from yesterday; I'm already in Zürich with a shitload more and scarcely enough Computerzeit to blog 'em all out. Ach, du liebe Elyse! Here's my one Swiss pic pick: dinnertime beef tartare.

Wow, the great Elyse not far from me! We do write computer with a c by the way.
Gorgeous pictures, Elyse. Ice cream looks good and beef tartare and fixings look delicious.
Americans, can we strive to make our country look more like the Schwartzwald?
Sure, but it would require that our country be more like their country in more ways than clean highways.
Minnie looks pretty sultry.
Walkin' staff = Wanderstab in German.

We had to learn a song by Schubert in high school, and that was, by far, our favorite word in it. "Meinem Wanderstab" sounds in incredibly dirty when you're a 17 year old boy. (At least it did to us.)
and it does to me as a german girl. :D

excellent, in good ol' germany... I live in cologne, u happen to get here? haha.
PS: Computer, not Komputer. liebe Elyse, not lieber Elyse. just sayin.
Nice to know I met my per-entry quota of Deutsch gaffes. One thing, though: doesn't the song go, "Ach, du liebeR Augustin"? I'll be sorry if that's wrong 'cause I've been using it left and right.

German Granny shows why people are well-advised to use more sunscreen than crunk juice over their lives.

Taz says, "You better watch out, cause I'm a Wir Machen!"

I'm sure that's not the only picture you took of that manly German in his macho black leather riding suit. No doubt he showed you his Monster at greater length. Then Baldovino caught up to you and put you back in the nunnery where you belong.

How depressing that the vapid influence of Avril Lavigne has reached Germany. That ice cream seller appears to be declaring himself the mutterficken' game warden. I'm hoping he doesn't mean that literally.

I presume the EIS stands for Elyse, Insatiable Sucker. That sucker Minnie's got looks willing to suck right back.

How could you omit this painting? Wow, those are two German noses if ever I saw such. Refugees from a hair-metal band?

Eating raw meat again, eh? As I said, EIS...
Eis is ice cream.
I am so damn grateful for this blog.
Red-framed sunglasses! Nun! Freaky Minnie Mouse-esque...thing!
Now if only that nun took a myspace picture with those red sunglasses...
I am intrigued by the nun walking away from the building site.

I think she must have walked right through the fence.

Me, I'm goggling at the motorcyclist filling up with diesel (paraffin).

That steak tartare looks so good. Yum. The guy on the motorcycle isn't bad either!

aesop rock reference? a+
Great stuff!
I wish I could say that of my fair Vancouver but alas we are not as green as Germany whose economy is booming with green.

That nun and granny are so bad ass. I wouldn't want to meet them in a dark alley.

No unique tasty treats to be had in germany?
mahlzeit, dir! going to meet my best friend in frankfurt in a couple of weeks. can't wait!
So many glorious colors.
Motorcycle dude is so hitting on you!
Hahaha I thought the same exact thing. He looks happy that you'd want to snap him pumping his tank

Are the roads free of litter because everybody is well-trained that they wouldn't even consider throwing out anything or because there are squads of litter police trawling every kilometer of roadway to immediately whisk off anything that dares to land on the pristine roads or berms?
A litter Gestapo if you will?
waldmeister!! you should try that with beer (sometimes you can get it in the pub, but you can make one yourself)! just buy a bottle of weiss beer (the one with low alcohol content) and the waldmeister flavored syrup (you can get strawberry and raspberry too). divine!!
