Excellent. What's truly amazing is how much less public lighting Germany uses. In the Berlin area they still use gas lamps for much of the pedestrian lighting in residential areas and don't use roadway lighting at all. With your eyes dark adapted, you barely notice how much you can see with 1/10th the amount of illumination used in most of the US.
