It started raining when we got there...we were at the fest about 30 minutes and we had all we could take of the crowds, smells, ect. bought our bratwurst and gingerbread cookie and left for downtown Munich.
we decided that we didn't want to walk the 13 blocks or so Marion Platz so we decided to take a "taxi" .....a man pedaling a cart on the back of his bicycle...yep YOLO!! :)
I can't tell you how many shrieks, screams, grabbing the side of the cart, squeezing our eyes shut, p.r.a.y.i.n.g......he was weaving in and out of cars. Then we almost hit a car as he pulled out in front of the intersection at a red light. agghhhh We finally made it downtown, after hugging each other and thanking the Lord we made it...we ventured into the square.
Building you see with the flags in the front has a giant cuckoo clock in the front...every mid day the clocks chimes, sings and the characters all move.
