The BMW museum, shaped like a carburetor! I'm standing just outside the museum, with the Olympic Stadium's tower in the background. Hey, could that red contraption be a Smart Car prototype?

germany_mime.jpg (55,608 bytes) No, it's not a statue. It's a street performer who will do amusing things for deutsche marks!
