Interesting point of view calling public sexual intercourse in public transport in front of children on Sunday mid-morning normal and witnesses getting annoyed intolerant.:unsure:

Anyone knows any major cities in the world where people will not bat an eye in such an event? Would love to hear your thoughts on that.

 

1. Um. Can't find one from the top of my hat. Please add as appropriate.:lol:

Don't forget to ask about the schools that are literally falling apart.

 

Or the waiting time to register a car/motorcycle (I know someone who recently had to wait over 3 weeks for plates for his new motorcycle).

 

 

 

Whereas in US public schools are usually epitomes of architectural style and modern equipment, right?

While in Singapur and Honkong you just go to the car dealer next door and drive away with a brand new car.

:P

The couple were expressing their democratic right to sexual expression in whatever manner they felt.

A number of friends recommended we visit Berlin, which we duly did in March 2010. The weather was very cold but sunny. There were some areas we found interesting, largely because they were major film and newsreel images from the WW2, Soviet occupation, or unification periods, such as the Reichstag (with Foster's amazing new dome), Brandenburg gate, Checkpoint Charlie and remnant of the wall on Zimmerstrase, and the Soviet war memorial (near the Brandenburg Gate). Other beautiful buildings include those in the Gendarmenmarkt, island of museums on Bodestrase, the synagogue on Oranienbugerstrase, and Berlin Cathedral. There are impressive modern buildings also - the amazing new Hauptbahnhof station, the Sony building complex and La Fayette mall on Potsdamer Stras. There is an interesting old quarter north of Oranienbugerstrase with restaurants etc. The people were always couteous, friendly and helpful.
The majority of Berlin however is populated by modern, unmemorable multi-storey office and apartment blocks, which is what we spent most of our time walking past in order to reach the interesting buildings. Yes they are clean, modern, and sometimes impressive, but rather anonymous and unmemorable.
So while it was an interesting experience, there are many other cities we have stayed in mainland Europe that we enjoyed much more.
