Located in Bavaria, Munich (look for the British Flag on the bar) combines both modern technology and building practices with a lot of old world charm. (Tourist booklet here.) Not strictly a place of high rise cement or square corners, I happily walked around with my camera.

Never mind that I wound up buying yet another umbrella.

There is absolutely no way that I can explain the fact that it never rains when I pack an umbrella. And why would I pack an umbrella when it isn’t raining? I don’t even think about it. Which explains why I was getting wet while walking from Odeonsplatz to Marienplatz, passing by the Residence.

Under construction, I still like both the Residences outdoor gardens and the painted drop cloth facing the street.

The arch is quite commonly seen and I was in time to hear 1800 rung on the main clock as well as watch the whole cycle on the clock. (Yes, I know that all the tourist information says that they ring the clock at 1700. This is daylight savings time folks, they don’t change the time of clock ringing – we just hear it at a different time)

I ended up in the area around Karlstor.

Did I mention that it was raining? Or that if you want sock yarn, Karstadt is cheaper than Kaufhof Galleria?

(Hopefully the pictures should stay in the order loaded. If you click – a larger version should load)

No knitting pictures today – not possible to put them here and keep them out of the gallery. Besides, you saw enough yellow on Mon and Tues that you should be able to make it till tomorrow.

    Don’t worry, you’re not alone. I have the same problem with umbrellas and rain. If I pack one, you can take it for granted that it will not rain. I help myself with hooded sweaters.
