"One day it occurred to me that it had been many years since the world had been afforded the spectacle of a man adventurous enough to undertake a journey through Germany on foot. After much thought, I decided that I was a person fitted to furnish to mankind this spectacle. So I determined to do it. This was in March, 1878." Mark Twain, A Tramp Abroad


The Great Escape

hmmm....there's got to be a way out of this thing

i bet i can climb out of here

or maybe if i shake it hard enough

or perhaps i could eat my way through the bar

my foot fits through, so maybe the rest of me will too

  2. good point. especially since it's not against the law to break out of a german prison. (we learned this important piece of information during a tour of the old wall.)
