In the Middle of the Road

When the Germans made there ‘Autobahnen’ throughout their country the slogan was “Immer Gerade Aus” (=”Always straight forward”). I thought about that when I recently drove up North from our village. I also remember a true story from my youth when a German lost his way in my village of birth (Beneden-Leeuwen, Netherlands) and asked road directions to the bridge over the river. The old man he asked knew his German: “Immer gerade aus. Immer gerade aus”, the villager answered, “and at Hent de Kul turn right (the last part in his dialect and probably needless to say that ‘Hent de Kul’ was the name of another villager).

For the second picture I just turned myself around.
