What is the most favorite snack of the Germans?
Bratwurst mit brotchen! or grilled sausage in a roll!!
How does one eat it? Standing!!!
A wurst seller carries the grill, the gas tank, the bread and sausages and other knick-knacks while cooking
and selling in a standing position!
He stands on the street and actually does a very brisk business! Oh, he also carries an umbrella, in case it rains! And that bag is probably where he keeps the bread!

In the motorway, if you missed the border sign indicating “Deutschland”, you will easily recognize that you are already in the German autobahn (motorway) if, all of a sudden, some big, black, flashy cars come speeding fast you!!
Usually black or grey (hey, I don’t see such colours as red or blue or yellow here!) and usually sporting a car showroom shine and usually in the likes of a Mercedes, Porsche, BMX…..(Boy! this country is rich!) – these sleek cars glide fast so handsomely that instead of shrieking in fear that you suddenly find yourself in the center of a car race, you are actually enjoying every minute of it because this is a race of rich and elegant cars!
Next, you look at the plate numbers and you will also howl in awe!
Is that figure the amount in Euros they earn per day?
….or is it simply the year they got their driver’s license…. or sometimes, even the year of their birth (1980 etc)!
There is no speed limit in the German autobahn so one can drive as fast as their car can handle it. But in city or residential streets the speed limit signs are conspicuous – like 60- or 30-kmp
On entering Aachen, a big crowd is gathered in a corner street – wow! a flea market is going on! Events like this are never passed up by yours truly! These are the places I can find great bargains! And I was right, I found a pizza tray, in earthenware material, made in Itay, just for 1 euro!
one can also sell his produce in flea markets
Cigarette machines. They have similar cigarette machines in Spain. But in France, you only buy them from a Tabac or a cigarette shop where
the seller can scrutinize if you are within smoking age.
Sexy poster. Did I mention before that sexy posters in Germany abound?
A sexy photo even in a bar menu!
