 Our destination today would be Munich with our arrival at the German border taking all of 7 minutes. Lunchtime, we stopped at the coolest rest stop near Nuremberg. The restroom consisted of putting 50 euro cents in a turning stall to which you then got a receipt for 50 cents off lunch. haha After using the toilet, the commode seat rotated. I had never seen that and we were all pretty amazed by it! There was a restaurant which had a selection of sandwiches and such. A cheese sandwich and cola were about 7 euros. 

We arrived in Munich around 3pm and saw ALLIANZ Stadium & Olympic Park. We stopped at SCHLOSS NYMPHENBURG BESUCHER, which used to be the summer residence of Bavarian rulers.We were then dropped off in the city center of MUNICH,  Marienplatz to explore for a couple of hours.

Bavaria
This was also a big tourist area crowded with lots of shops and ice cream places. Discouraged after my friend not finding a beer sign, we decided to do what any person should do in Munich: Drink Beer! We sat at a table outside a place called PAULANER or maybe that was the name of the beer? After taking in one glass, I was happy and proceeded to place my camera strategically on the table so as to take pictures of random people walking by. I also wanted to include the latest fashions. ;) I must have taken about 10 pictures with heads cut off and backs. We did meet 2 friendly guys from New Guinea, Africa and chatted with them a few minutes until they found out we were leaving in an hour. haha We went back to the hotel drunk and I proceeded to take more pictures out our hotel window.

Our last excursion was the Bavarian Evening at the Hafbrauhaus which included a buffet dinner with pork knuckles which were tasty, by the way.

Allianz stadium
The place was so hot and crowded as we were seated at very long tables with no air conditioner. In the front was a stage where the entertainment took place. We had yet another fun filled evening as we sat with Mick, Kerry, Paul & Sharon from Australia. We each got a liter glass filled with beer and I did drink all of it. Later, we said our goodbyes to Franco, our bus driver, as this would be his last night with us.

Back at our hotel, the room was also stifling hot. Obviously Munich does not believe in air conditioners. Mick did inform us that there was a fan in the rooms. There it was behind the chair, thank goodness.
