Regardless, we had a nice weekend. We arrived and immediately hooked up with Mike’s Bike Tours, taking part in a 4 hour tour of Munich. For some reason, I kept thinking of Gilligan’s island while we were on our 4 hour tour. Although, I think Gilligan and the crew were on a 3 hours tour. I didn’t get to take many pictures but L’s sister took several of these guys for me who were surfing in a river. It was pretty cool:
Things I should have known but apparently forgot:
Munich is where Hitler rose to power along with the Nazi party. I read the Rise and Fall of the Third Reich but that little tidbit did not stick with me.
The Dachau Memorial is fairly close to the city. We didn’t go, I just didn’t think I was in the right place emotionally to wander through that but someday I think I will go back. I also didn’t realize that Dachau was a kind of clearing house. That almost everyone who was sent to the concentration camps were initially sent there and then, for lack of a better word, sorted.
On a different note:
Our hotel room had a very nice yet somewhat puzzling bathroom:
Notice the hot and cold faucets way above the toilet. If I was standing in the picture they would be just over my head. Seriously, what the heck are they used for? They don’t control the water in the shower. D was going to turn the knobs to see what happened but I mentioned that all I could envision was water shooting out of the toilet like a fountain. No one wanted to witness that. Besides, if that really did happen the person turning the knobs would be soaked. Ick.
