Jesus Just Left Chicago

Madrid, actually. But once she got to Germany nobody offered her a place to sit.

Greta

Nobody needed to. She also had a first class ticket. But that’s beside the point or something. I just don’t get it. Doesn’t Greta HERSELF have her own special train or, you know, mobile field headquarters or something along those lines?

Climate activist Greta Thunberg and Germany’s national railway company created a tweetstorm Sunday after she posted a photo of herself sitting on the floor of a train surrounded by lots of bags.

The image has drawn plenty of comment online about the performance of German railways.

Wir wünschen #Greta eine gute Heimfahrt. Und arbeiten weiter hart an mehr Zügen, Verbindungen und Sitzplätzen.

  1. In November, I went to a wedding in Germany. We spent a couple days in Amsterdam, and then took the ICE from Amsterdam to Duisburg. We rode business class with our airplane luggage. It was very comfortable.

    We had to wait 45 minutes in the Duisburg HBHoff. We were approached by American style “homeless”, begging for hooch money. We then took a commuter train to our final destination. Since it was a just a10 minute ride, we kind of look like Gretta with our luggage near the door. Overall, the Bundesbahn and its local carrier were a good experience.

    Ironically, I traveled on Amtrack a week before to NYC. That was also a good experience.
