Example 2. Denote by Z the set of all integers and consider the countable family {R × {n} : n ∈ Z} May 2010] ON SOME COVERINGS OF THE EUCLIDEAN PLANE 415 of horizontal lines in R2 . We say that a circle C ⊂ R2 is admissible if there exists an integer n such that C is tangent to both of the lines R × {n} and R × {n + 1}. It is readily verified that all admissible circles have diameter 1 and every point of R2 belongs to exactly two admissible circles. Thus, denoting the family of all admissible circles by C = {Ci : i ∈ I }, we conclude that C is a 2-homogeneous covering of R2 .
