holiday stories: where are the donkeys?

Europe. Oh, boy. A firework for all your senses after a year in Ovamboland – and the compared to Munich or Zurich provincial Windhoek.
One thing I was looking for: train rides, no kidding. First the ICE in Germany. Right now travelling from Basel to Paris with the TGV. Walking around, reading, chatting with strangers and posting a blog entry – at a speed of 250km/h – and the only danger comes from coffee you might spill over yourself.
