Pictures of pork, beer and pretzels

My lunch all last week.  I’m currently on a salad diet.


Public restrooms in Munich

…or at least restrooms in restaurants.

I noticed something interesting on last week’s trip to Munich.  Many of the restrooms have hair products, mouthwash, doedorant, etc. out on the sink as if you are at your own home.  The first time I saw it, I assumed the restaurant was a family run place and maybe the owner left her things in there.  But then I saw it two more times.  What a great idea!

It was really great for me as I used the mousse in this picture to get my hair out of my eyes.


Is Saturday Lederhosen day?

People of Munich, Germany.  A question.

Is Saturday Lederhosen day?  I only ask because about 40 percent of your population were wearing them last Saturday.  Here’s just a few I got pictures of.

Whatever the answer, I loved it.  It entertained me all day.


Suicide Circus

Worst Circus ever.
