... bear and a woman who is a bass. It was a man. After buying 15 euro tickets and being rows 3 and 4 away from the stage, we went to her hostel to make sure her stuff was there and picked up her coat. We then went to a brewery and talked with the bar tender. I bought a glass to add to my collection in the States. After the opera, we went to get food.

For only 14eur, we got relatively comfy seats, a coffee machine on the bus, and free WiFi. Also impressive was how on time ...

In practice, though, it is just as difficult to get round on a bicycle as in, say, Vienna. Difficult, though not impossible. It's nice to see that many people actually own a bike, and use it for everyday transport, rather than just sport or play. And it's also nice to see that bicycle shops sell ...
