Greetings from Munich, home to brauhaus and BMW's! Speaking of the latter, we had rented a BMW through Hertz and upon pick-up were told that we cannot drive it to Italy as there is too a high risk for damage and theft. We later exchanged it for a Volvo that runs on diesel.
We were beyond tired from getting a few winks on the plane and after and a full day of walking through the Residence Museum. We visited the world's largest beer hall, the HofBrauhaus and had beer and Bavarian pork knuckle and dumplings.
Still trying to figure out how to post photos on this blog. Stay tuned!
