Here's the DeutscheBahn bullet train I took from Paris to Saarbruecken. It attains speeds over 200 MPH -- faster than my aircraft (Airbus A330) attained this morning when it lifted off from the runway! I've seen these in previous visits; amazingly fast and the movie "Atlas Shrugged" brought them to mind. Add a little speed and keep the price competitive, I'd choose these over crummy Alaska Airlines (air? what air? you need to breathe or sumpin?) in a flash.
What an AWESOME place to be!
I can’t help but wish I had the gelt...
