Munchen

A journal entry from: Europe 2011

Have spent the day relaxing in Munich. Woke up at 5 to be on the bus for a four hour ride, blech!

Lúckily for me, my friend Robin from the band is also staying here for a while so we spent a bit of the day together. First was the Hofbrauhaus where we had delicious beer and pork. That place is humoungous! And I loved the brass band that was playing. Then we walked around. The Rathaus or City Hall is quite something, very gothic but with red flower boxes.

I stumbled on a poster for a Mahler exhibition at a Museum so went and checked that out. Too bad only 20% was in English, I got to see some of his original compostions, including a few of his symphonies -ahh! And a few of the costumes they used in Wagner operas in the early 1900s.

I made my way back to Robins hotel, have had a shower, going to go get some food for the overnight train ride to Berlin tonight.

Bye for now!
