Balcony blues

Many people are envious of the German economy, The neocons and free-marketers hate the success of the German economy, because they prefer a highly unregulated finance based economy, of the kind that has just massively failed in the US and UK.

The main surprise I have about Germany is how anything gets done when most flats have nice balconies. I wanted to do a little work yesterday, but instead I spent most of the time reading on my balcony. It is pleasantly warm and it is relaxing to watch the leaves rustle in the light wind. It is a holiday I suppose.
