This time, Munich.

I think the most German thing I saw was on the flight out of LAX. As we board, a gentleman comes down the aisle, stops a row or two behind me and says to the guy in the window seat, "You are in the Wrong seat." A straightforward declarative sentence. I can imagine an American saying 'you are in my seat' but much more likely some awkward verbal prologue.

Anyway, my coworker and I had some time to sightsee on Monday, so we visited the Asamkirche, City Hall (and its animated clock), climbed the 299 steps at the Old Peter church, the Frauenkirche, and on into the English Garden.

But I think the highlight was the royal Wittelsbach Residence (home to the kings of Bavaria) and its treasury of crown jewels and other treasures.

One night, a client took us out for a tour of the Allianz Arena, ending with a fine dinner up at the skybox level.

All the photos.

Amazing to think that Cosmo Webrin performed on this very (strange) piano.

Game board and awesome upright piano
