Metro Berlin

8

What is the difference between the remotest place on earth and Berlin? Of course its Metro.

So you’ve hitch-hiked through Latin America, stalked rare beasts in Africa and trekked your way through a remote place. You’re pretty well traveled. Before you get ideas about being an intrepid explorer, however, consider this. Very little of the world’s land can now be thought of as inaccessible, according to a new map of connectedness created by Italian researchers for European Commission’s Joint Research Centre and the World Bank.

The authors combined a series of maps to create a new map of connectedness showing the most interconnected and remote places on earth. The maps are based on a model which calculated how long it would take to travel to the nearest city of 50,000 or more people by land or water. The model combines information on terrain and access to road, rail and river networks. It also considers how factors such as altitude, steepness of terrain and hold-ups like border crossings slow travel.

The remotest place is in Tibet at 34.7°N, 85.7°E check the map http://www.newscientist.com/data/images/ns/cms/mg20227041.500/mg20227041.500-1_1000.jpg.

The most tragic aspect of this map is that few places can still considered remote. For sure we cannot say that bars, places, currywrust are remote in Berlin. According to me Berlin is one of the most well connected city with its multiple lines covering large sections of the city. The Metro in Berlin can transport more than 750 people at one ride. The U-Bahn network is of 170 stations and trains are available every 4 to 5 minutes. The trains of Berlin Metro play almost for 24 hours through day and night. PAY ATTENTION there is a random check by the ticket collectors, they have the ability to camouflage themselves :))))… it’s very funny to see the next disguise, no way it can be everyone…
Ah if you are planning to visit Berlin and you want to know how the benches of every single metro station look like, then you have to visit this website!

    Spinner 360: Pull the Cord and Let the Magic Happen!

    The story between the Spinner 360 and I goes way back to the year 2010, when Lomography decided to send me a beta model of the Spinner 360 to test. It was a complete surprise! I thought, "What the hell is that?" as I first took this camera out of the package. Then, when my little brother grabbed it from me and pulled the cord, it buzzed and turned 360°! We all had the same expression: "Whoa..."
