July 13, 2010, Kings Center Hotel, Munich — From Rothenburg, we changed trains three times. Our last one was the ICE from Nurnburg to Munich (München). It doesn’t feel fast. It’s smooth and quiet, but I have to revise my thought that the ICE is no faster than our Amtrack. I asked a steward how fast we were going.

“Two hundred fifty kilometers per hour,” he replied in English. I did the math — 156 miles per hour! Was there a problem with translation?
