The day started the same way like on Saturday: When the alarm bell of my friend's mobile phone woke me up ruggedly after mere 5 hours of sleep again, I had to restrain myself from strangling him.
After breakfast, we walked downtown to climb up the steeple of Old Peter, how our guide the day before had advised us to do. After a tough struggle with what seemed to me to be at least 1000 steps we finally reached the pinnacle. The view definitely compensated us for the toil of getting up there. Far away one could even see the Alps and finally it was possible to get the whole Frauenkirche on one picture :-) Alas, it was pretty full up there although it was not later than 11 a.m.
Later we went for the gallery in the Lenbachhaus as my friend wanted to visit the Kandinsky-exhibition.
...well...preferences differ, don't they?^^
As it comes to me, I wasn't eager in the least to walk around a gallery with my more and more hurting feet. When we finally reached the gallery, I also finally found out, how much that amusement should cost. 12 € was definitely too much for me. Firstly my moneybag was being stressed enough for this weekend and secondly I was of the opinion that - in my condition - mere accompanying the culture-junkie beside me was enough of concession. So after an awkward moment in front of the counter he finally realised partly what was going on inside me so he proposed me to visit the gallery some other time when the Kandinsky-exhibition would have past. I didn't need to be told that twice so hardly had he finished I was already outside the building. As I already was at the Brienner-street, I used the opportunity to take some pictures of the propylaeum, the glyptotheque and the obelisque.
While I was hopping around with my camera, I suddenly saw my little scholar - whom I supposed to admire Kandinsky's works at that moment - coming up the way. Seeing my surprised look, he told me with an indefinable smile that he also was going to stroll around as he already knew the Lenbachhaus... and you guys complain that we women don't know what we want!
So after standing around stupidly and gaping at his back as my friend was walking away I took some more pics and then went back to the subway and drove back to the city center. Well, the rest of the day passed pretty unspectacular. Only in the late afternoon I was pretty happy to have map with me as I finally got lost between the English Garden and the Isar. Oh, and when my mate and me met again in the evening I found out that he had spent the day with a friend in the Alte Pinakothek. 'Cause on Sundays, it's free!...he told me proudly :-)
