There was a broadcast on TV today. About the "Lovetrain to Middlemarch"!
I heard there aren't enough male singles in New Zealand / on the North Island? So women from the North Island take the "Lovetrain to Middlemarch" on the South island to find a husband? Mainly lonely farmers?
Well; about 50 years ago there weren't enough women in New Zealand! I know this because I saw reports about German women who emigarted from Germany ...
Yes I have heard about this Middlemarch lovetrain. The women go down on the train and then there is a big party. Looks like a lot of fun
There are less than 1 million peole in the entire South Island so it's no wonder they run out of women now and then! If you like minimal traffic (and people), spectacular scenery and great roads, then the South Isalnd of NZ is for you! My partner comes from down there so we go to see the in laws annually, and I love it.
We had an article here about some political party in Germany that held a beer drinking contest. Sorry I don't recall all the details but it definately had something to do with drinking the most beer. That too sounds like a lot of fun Perhaps you could give me the details.
1 million people on the South Island, but more than 3 million sheep!

Looked more like a lot of mud! Final result (they said on TV): 300 pairs of ruined women shoes!

Haven't heard of this. What a shame! A good reason to vote for them!
Maybe someone else has heard of this contest?!
The German word for polling station is "Wahllokal". If you translate it 1:1 it would be "voting pub". Don't know the origin of the word. May come from the latin word "Location". Or because in former times many polling stations were in pubs. Nowadays many polling stations already have voting computers and they are situated in schools, youth centres and town halls. In many cities of the Lower Rhine area they still use paper ballots. In Dortmund they already have these voting computers. It's a shame that the computers have no "random button"!
