Attempts at Spreading Bella-dom in Germany

Here I am posing in front of a nuclear plant and wind turbines (which you can’t see) on a 35 K bike path that lead to Warnemünde, a seaside resort on the Baltic Sea where we hoped to swim – the ride took so long because we kept losing the route that we ended up taking the train back to Rostock. I had wanted to rent a racing bike, but that just wasn’t possible, and as it was, this mountain bike cost me nearly $18 for the day to rent, much more expensive than the usual cruisers that the trainstations have to lease out.
This is me and two other German teachers, the woman in the middle is Canadian and the one who came on the ride with me. I frightened her with my outfit. (and maybe my white legs too)
This is what I want to ride next time:
And here is what the German police look like when they are preventing drunken soccer fans from getting too rowdy at the trianstation.
And you thought I’d been arrested for something like talking on my cell phone while riding, right? (There actually is a law against that, and it’s a 25 Euro fine!)
