...my refusal to wear a helmet is informed
Aah Berlin... the only foreign city I lived in. I cycled all over the city all Summer of 1992. And I loved it too. I visit Berlin as often as I can. I think the cycling facilities are quite good there. I don't mind to cycle on the -by some- hated 'on sidewalk cycle paths' in Germany. It is not like home (Netherlands) but much better than no cycle paths at all. Probably the reason for the much higher numbers of cyclists compared to other large capitals like London or Paris.
Of COURSE ya'll loved Berlin! What a tour de force!I SO want to go back there!What's your next stop?
Mark - no wonder you lived there - Berlin is stunning!!Marc - your 'ich bin ein berliner' post makes me want to go back right now - your photos are brilliant, naturally!! - currently enjoying Köln!!! Sadly our precious 'baby no. 2' heads back to Cairo tomorrow - all has gone way too quickly (sniff & sigh)
