Lovely old German vehicles…

I was out and about in Duisburg today and I spotted these two beauties.

First up, a red BMW motorbike with sidecar – not the newest but definitely oozing with retro-charm. Getting in and out of it might be a challenge… but who needs to wear a pencil skirt anyway?

Second, the door-to-door grocer was out and about with his yellow deli-van. One half  is a greengrocer, the other a butcher and vendor of fine condiments. Dairy in the cool box in the middle. A very fine selection of home-produced sausages, hanging up at the back. Much more fun than queueing up at Aldi!

Stop me and buy one!

The people of Duisburg are obviously quite inventive actually. For instance, instead of the ubiquitous Internet-café they can offer you the Internet-hairdresser.

Surf and blow-dry?

There was also a lego-man down near the harbour. I suspect he’s German. It’s the socks and sandals that give it away…
