It’s funny how little things will capture my attention. And here’s an example of that: the green and red stop lights for pedestrians seem to tickle my fancy.
I call out, “Green Man” when the green light (a stick-figure man) gives us permission to cross the street. The red man doesn’t get my attention, for all he does is make us stand and wait.
I remember the last time I was here in Berlin and that green man stick figured caught my attention. Now I have discovered that I’m not the only one who likes the little green men. Marilyn and I found a complete store dedicated to the ‘green man’. Not so much attention is given to the red man.
In the store there are bags, cups, purses, t-shirts, sweat shirts, shorts, and more more with the cute green man logo.
It was also a surprise to be sitting in the lobby and look at the Christmas decorations inside the moving door. There I found that the red and green stop light was used as decor, along with Santa Claus. So there! I’m not the only person infatuated with the green man.
I won’t be coming back to the states with any souvenirs of green man, however I did take a photo of a stop light, and the green man logo at the front of the store.
While on the subject of observations, I have noticed that smokers are not aloud to smoke inside restaurants, but most have designated places out doors. Because it’s cold outside for those who want a smoke, many restaurants provide chairs with blankets. It’s not uncommon to see a cigar smoking man all bundled up with his cigar outside.
