The Glockenspiel.

Though we had only been Europe for 5 days, we had covered a lot of ground. We had slept through most of the Netherlands and part of Germany. We took in the countryside until we pulled into Munchen. We came in from the northside and wouldn't understand until later how huge the city was. We noticed a cafe across the street from the station and decided to get something to eat. The Cocaine Cafe. Odd, but we were hungry. We sat and had an enjoyable meal. I was facing the door and had been noticing several people coming in a heading towards the back. The funny thing was they never seemed to stay long. And with nothing in a to go bag! We joked that the name and its proximity to the rail station made it an excellent place for "takeout". Munchen wasn't really or reason for being here. We wanted to see the castle district: Linderhof, Hohenschwangau and Neuschwanstein. So we called up an advertised tour group and found out they had a bus leaving in about a hour. We made the short walk to the bus and got all or gear squared away underneath. Took a seat, then took off. We would be back later in the day. And head off again.... Or would we?
