Pino wrote me while on the train heading for Praha. He got quite an adventure on the S-Bahn on his way to Hauptbahnhof to catch the train– for reasons unknown the train was blocked between Hackescher Markt and Friedrichstraße, after waiting 15 minutes he got out and walked along the rail to the next station. I can quite see him walking, swearing and sweating on the elevated train-track, just hope he wasn’t alone in doing so. At Friedrichstraße, after considering what to do next he decided to ride to Südkreuz, and fortunately he managed to the train station just seconds before the train leaving.
And in his own words
La S-Bahn si è fermata tra Hackescher Markt e Friedrichstraße, dopo 15 min di attesa ho aperto le porte di emergenza, sono volato fuori e me la sono fatta a piedi sui binari. A Friedrichstraße non sapevo che fare, se prendere la S-Bahn per Südkreuz o farmela a piedi fino all’Hauptbahnhof. Ho scelto la prima. Sono arrivato al pelo e per fortuna il treno per Praga era in ritardo.
