Random walks in random environments (RWRE), processes where a randomly
chosen transition probability is assigned to each lattice point,
have been introduced in the multi-dimensional setting by S.A. Kalikow in 1981.
We will review the current status of four problems which he posed
and present in greater detail a 0-1-law for the asymptotic
direction of planar RWRE.
