    Paul,

    I used to get over there much more than I do now… Our business is divided between the US and DE, so I’m over there at least 3-5 times a year.

    I rarely get a chance to ride while I’m there, but I’m considering a break this summer. The hard part is taking that much time off. If I’ve already been in Berlin for the week on business, then the guys in NY need me back in the office. Adding another week to the trip just for “fun” is pushing it, and if I’m taking that much time off, then I had rather involve my family…

    Berlin is a great city, but like all other cities, it helps to know someone there who can show you around. It’s not where you are, but who you’re with that counts. (If you think the Parisians have attitude, watch out for the Berliners!!!) Don’t go for the architecture. While some of the castles survived, much of Berlin was flattened during the war. The new buildings were erected in haste. Anything with the original fa?Âșade is sought after (but often rented by students).

    Berlin could go up or down. I’m hoping for an up-tick.

    -Alex

    I thought I didn't have to explain my art? Element.. leaves on a tree... This urinal is the element of an entire plumbing and sewage system, even though it is out of order. It represents the chaos and the natural beauty of its home. It is a metaphor of its surroundings. It is Camp Sheideck.

    Urinal photographic art was just a flash in the pan!

    The first message was just a weak excuse for toilet humour.
    Bear in mind, I'm still on medication until the end of this week.

    The Seattle underground tour perpetuates the urban myth that James Crapper invented the flushing toilet. He did not, there was a flushing toilet recorded as far back as Egyptian times. He invented the ballcock valve I think and it was just coincidence he was called crapper, as crap as we know it, had been used as a term many years prior to his birth. And, he wasn't knighted by Queen Victoria either...it's just for the tourists and is a load of.....

    Here it is, and I didn't find this assignment elementary.

    The clock we are talking about is directly outside the Swiss clock museum and as far as the outside world cares, Switzerland is known for: Watches, Toberlerone triangular chocolate, Swiss Army Knives, Banks of dubious integrity, Heidi, cheese fondue, yodelling and the Alps. And last but not least, cuckoo clocks.

    Personally, I tend towards CERN and the Olympic Museum, but that's only because I've done work with them.
    OOPS!!!

    Swedes, Swiss whatever, its all cheese to me!
