Huge vending machine

We were wandering around Gare de l’Est today trying to decide whether or not to hop a random train to somewhere in Germany when we ran across a giant-sized vending machine.

USS Vending Machine

It dispensed such things as candy bars, phone cards, 1 litre bottles of water & soda, microwave dinners, and sandwiches. Standing next to it made me feel like we’d been shrunk down to 1/4 our original size or something, wee folk living in a land of giants. Giants that ate tiny Snickers bars and drank miniature bottles of Coke.
