Window shopping! See what I see.

I thought it would be fun to show you a walking viewpoint of stores and shops in Saarbrucken Germany. The names of the stores are sometimes odd,  and others...........hysterical, especially when considering the translation to English.

Let's stroll!
18?!?  Does that mean 19 and 20 are in different countries?
For the record, Forever 21 is so much better.

Germany's version of Sephora/Kohls

Really? What bizarre name for this upscale jewelry store. Schmuck?
Now that's funny.See the guy staring? I get this type of photo
ALL OF THE TIME. I'm not even trying to take his photo.


They spelled it wrong

Very popular over here - and spendy.

There are a ton of these junky Chinese import stores. 
I have no idea why they have a French name.

Drug store type cosmetics & home gadgets.
See the orange chair and the lime green wall?

Lime green and bright orange are POPULAR for home decor and kitchen gadgets.
When paired with all white dishes - its gorgeous. 

Tons of white pieces for spring and summer

Starbucks, it feels like I'm back at home. This is where I was standing
when faux TRANNY trampled everyone in her path and raced up to me

In the states you get guitar and drum street musicians.  Here in
 Germany, this  guy will bust out tunes on his accordion.
 Complete with a free cheery smile.

Oh, I"m so glad you loved it! I almost didn't post it out of sheer embarassment. However.......I have a special surprise for you. I found TRANNY mannequins over here. Yes, seriously - how odd is that? I will post photos by Tuesday.

Tranny mannequins?! Get on!!! Loving the orange, lime and white combo. I still don't think you can beat the high street shops in the UK - have you ever been shopping there? xxx

Update: Tranny manny's as in overdone hair and makeup - not actually images of 'personal bits' - that would be gross. You'll see what I'm talking about. Tranny manny's - the perfect term, that's funny!

Claudia - thank you for the translation! What an efficient language, all of that in one little word.

Hi Emma! Good to see you doll.
