Wo Ist Der Bahnhof?
Don’t ask me what that means. You don’t have to because I’m going to tell you. It’s German for “Where is the train station?” I used that phrase a lot when I was in Germany. I was fortunate to have found or caused no serious trouble during those years.
I would venture out away from the military towns where I was stationed, alone or with a few Friends. Hiking, rock climbing, fishing, all sorts of stuff. One thing I did learn while in Germany is that they can make beer a lot faster than we could drink it. That took a while to figure out.
Back to that train station, eh?
Wherever I had gone, the best way home was the train. There were some interesting adventures. Yeah, I might share some of those stories. Have I mentioned how fast they can make beer over there?
Straight up serious, I do have a reoccurring dream where I’m lost somewhere in the West German Rail System. Since I brought it up…we’ll see what fills my head tonight. I really do like trains.
Noch eine bier, bitte!
Ja, ich brauche ein taxi.
Wo ist der bahnhof?
Another beer, please!
Yes, I do need a taxi.
