Friday’s blog a private peek, so I am writing to you from a hotel in Munich. It’s a challenge piecing a blog together on an Ipad, but I so want to share this day with you!
You know, how you have a plan, but then unexpected things keep cropping up? Well, when we arrived this Thursday morning, the plan was to go into the city and just enjoy the fruit & veg market in the centre. So that’s where we headed…
Many of you will be familiar with the Viktualien Market in Munich; it is open every day and pretty impressive, and today was very lovely.
Then, in the distance, we heard a lot of music and racket, and there was a tall English policeman! See him? So we went to investigate…
When we got closer, the Bobby was actually Hermann, and having a blast with his friends! And that’s when we found out that it’s Fasching here. Karneval. In fact, it was Altweiberfest! Old Women’s Festival. Not what we expected at the fruit & veg market.
The evidence was there; we had just spaced it.
We always try to take in a gallery or museum, and today we went to the Munich Museum. Beautiful and fun, too. I liked the puppets and toys.
He was happy to see us, big hugs, and found us a table, but warned us that at 4pm the place would be taken over by crowds of people in fancy dress having a ball! Literally!
The place was certainly in party mode!
All in all, a pretty special day. And to crown it all, as we were walking to the hotel, Dave tried to read the name on the side of a van, as you do.
“Peter Stinkhole. Not a very good name for a plumber!” I’m telling you. I nearly fell into the road laughing. What a difference a Dave makes….
Time to stop. HSE24 beckons. 11am UK time. 12 noon here.
Over and out xxxx
