Bicycle Shop in Luebeck, Germany

Can I get an umlaut? Luebeck should have an umlaut over the 'u' and no 'e' next to it. Luebeck, you may be interested to know, was the birth place of marzipan, that tasty almond confection.

Thorsten would have us know that this image was taken with the iPhone. Knowing Thorsten, it was the *latest* iPhone.

Hamburg, Germany

Submitted by globe-trotter/astronaut-in-training/antarctic-explorer Ken Makoff, here's the latest of his shots from the road. We think it's an eatery/public house. Corrections welcome.

As Ken undergoes testing RIGHT NOW to determine whether he'll make it to the next round of astronaut testing - my best wishes are with him. Send some of your own.

Park Avenue South, New York City

Great fish plates with two sides for only $8.95. The Cod and Salmon are both fantastic. And the iced tea is recommended as well. Bon Appetit!

St. Petersburg

Submitted by Ken Mankoff and taken in St. Petersburg, the following posts illustrate the worldwide appeal of circular signs.

Russian Mystery

Submitted by Ken Mankoff, taken in St. Petersburg. I didn't know what this sign is for. I guessed it was for a bank called Liviz. I got the name right, got the business wrong. I put Liviz into Google and discovered that LIVIZ is a major alcohol producer. Almost like a bank.

What's the "24 hours" part of the sign? I know enough Russian to know that chas/chasa means hours (or time or watch) but what is "24 hours" doing on a booze sign? Or does Liviz have another meaning here?

Russian Eatery

Submitted by Globe Trotter, Ken Mankoff. This sign is advertising an eatery, I hope.

St. Petersburg

Submitted by the Globe Trotter himself, Ken Mankoff. This appears to be a bus sign for Globus
