The deutsche bahn

Needless to say, my trip around Germany, Switzerland, and Austria was a great success, thanks to Deutsche Bahn! They are highly reliable (though sometimes late by 5-15 minutes) but it was much better experience than UK train! It was big, clean, comfy, and FASTER than driving your own car! The intercity express runs approximately at 200km/hour. And the best thing is... it's cheap, you can purchase a ticket from munich to salzburg for mere 29 Euro return. We also find the deutschelander are extremely friendly people. Josiah soon make friends with some other kiddie on the train. Here, they watching thomas the tank engine together. Ok, the man in yellow is NOT headless, he is just to dark for my cheap lens to capture.
And something funny happen. Josiah, being a train enthusiast, had thomas the tank engine story book with him practically everywhere. A group of old people was offering to read the book to him and the girl on the picture above. The conversation (as much my broken Deutsche can comprehend) goes like this.

Oma : Oh, dies ist alles english! (this all in english)
Opa : Ach so...Was ist der Titel (I see, so what is the title?)
Oma : Thomas der Lokomotive (Thomas, the thank engine)
Opa : Huh? Pommes? (mumbled... didn't catched what he said).
Oma : Nein...nein, mit 'T', das ist Thomas, keine Pommes (no..no, with T, it is Thomas not Pommes).

Pommes frites = French Fries, or Chips in UK.
