I'm sure visitors from Asia wonder if anyone lives here at all. I

I have to disagree, My experience in Germany and Poland this past December, 
was that most people walk all over the place.  The car is used for long 
and only when the train did not go there, or to get to the train.  Yes, 
are a lot of cars, but most of the travelling in the cities seems to be by 
foot.  In Krakow and Zakopane, Poland, we hardly ever saw a car on the road, 
compared to the people on foot.  Heck, I lost 20 pounds walking on the trip 
and I 
ate everything in sight.  ;-)
