Here I am posing in front of a Radschlaeger, which has long been a tradition in Duesseldorf where young folks are doing cartwheel acrobatics for fun and money. The statue can be found in front of the Uerige brewery, a must when in the city to have traditional German food with ALT beer (dark and yummy). Just don't go for the Haxen which is pork knuckles. That's on the menue for Japanese tourists only.
In a very North American way I am now taking a break at a certain coffee chain sporting a mermaid in their logo while reading a German motorcycle travel magazine.
As nice as visiting friends and family might be, more than ever I feel that Canada has become my new adopted home. I am already getting homesick, and crave the relative warmth of the We(s)t Coast. Or maybe I am just missing my two-wheeled companion...?
