The dispensing chemist’s / pharmacy, the Apotheke, is very evident in the German urban landscape. This is the one nearest my flat. Alas, no polarizing filter! At the left, deep vein thrombosis on long-haul flights; at the right, knee joints; in the centre, ticks, with a map showing where they are most common. We have few ticks in the centre of Fürth (although if the greening continues the situation might change). I am particularly worried about the gigantic folding paper ticks. Here is a link to a picture showing you how to remove a tick from your pet snake (text German).
