Germany Munich Isar

2 June 2016

Clocks and accordians

Quirky Bavarian gifts

I again finished work late, so dont expect there to be much to see.
Despite the fact it has not rained at all here today until a brief shower this evening, the news is all about states of emergency being declared in parts of Bavaria and people dying in floods.
This has me thinking my upcoming visit to the Bavarian alps may be tricky.

Anyway, for lunch today I had a bratwurst hotdog. It was pretty average, but my sausage quota is now filled.
I dont have any funny stories today, but on my evening walk I did help a person in distress.
I was standing taking a photo of some blindfolded teenagers (see below) when a girl with a huge front and rear backpack, as well as pulling a suitcase and trying to read an ipad approached me whilst sobbing.
She was from Oregon and completely lost, with no map of any kind, looking for a gallery of some sort where she was meeting her 'friends' she had never met before. She had flown in from somewhere in the USA.
Anyway, I showed her where it was on the map on my phone, not far at all and she said she had been looking for 2 hours and didnt even know which may my map was showing her to go.
It was getting dark and starting to rain, so I told her to follow me. I thought it was foolish to follow me, but what choice did she have.
Anyway, it took about 5 minutes, she sobbed the whole way, and I could barely understand her, she almost tumbled down some stairs due to her bags which she wisely wouldnt let me help her with.
Once I pointed out the name on the building which matched the description on her ipad she never even said thanks, just ran towards it as fast as she could without giving me a second look.

This is a group of young people, blindfolded, standing near a homeless person and his dog, forming a kind of joined conga line whilst roaming around the city. Because, Germany?
