Of Children and Dogs
Right now, I am getting ready to present my paper in the CEEMAS conference, and my stress levels are a bit high, so I am posting to try and chill out a bit. In particular, I will be making fun of German iconography, which by the way I find extremely creative, and slightly funny. Digressions apart, it seems to me that the famous Teutonic fondness for canines also leaves its mark on the train fares. As you can see from this picture, taken in the train station at the Leipzig/Halle airport, children and dogs share the same class of ticket in a train. So, which one you would rather take with you? Your dog, or your kid?
