Summary: This paper considers 1-dimensional generalized random walks in random scenery. That is, the steps of the walk are generated by an arbitrary stationary process, and also the scenery is a priori arbitrary stationary. Under an ergodicity condition – which is satisfied in the classical case – a simple proof of the distinguishability of periodic sceneries is given.
