You basically have three options: Amtrak. Take the Cascades train from Vancouver to Seattle in about four hours.

But here are two examples: If you're near the west end of Ku'Damm, take the Ringbahn (S41) from S Halensee to S Westkreuz and change for the S7.

In addition to Michael's answer: it's (in theory) also possible to hitch-hike. You could hitch to the border, walk across (or journey with the kind soul who picked you up), and continue on.

The RATP Android and iPhone apps have station surroundings maps where exit numbers are shown. There are also neighborhood maps in the station itself (for a station with multiple exits, there's usually one on each platform and one near a cluster of exits, but not one at every place where you need to choose between multiple exit corridors). For some reason, ...

An alternative option, is the Pasmo. I 'lived' in Tokyo for 6 days because it was just a short visit. What I found really useful was the Pasmo (blank card). A card which you can put money into it and use it to travel around on public transport around the metropolitan area of Tokyo (this is what I did) It's great because there are many 'stations' to load more ...

Which Embera Community? I believe there are several Embera communities (including but not limited to Embera Drua (Upper Chagres), Embera Puru and Arimae), and hence various different places one can be picked up along the Chagres on the way to the village.

Most of these flights are on so small airlines that it's hard to get historical performance data on but the Philippine 453 flight out of 34 observations, 85% was on time, averaging only 9 minutes of delay, maximum 31 minutes of delay.
