Today I will take you on a walk in Munich. Mr. K and I visited his sister in this area last week, and while she was busy with her studies, we enjoyed a day in the city. On the S-Bahn we met a big party of people dressed in Tracht, their traditional costume. I tried to take a picture, but they were in a hurry to get to the Cathedral on time for a First Communion. I love the long skirts of the ladies, worn with pretty aprons and short jackets. In my next post you will see some of the men's clothes a little closer.
This is where they were going, to the Frauenkirche behind the houses:
It is asparagus season, many stalls had this delicious treat beautifully displayed. Guess what I made for lunch today? Asparagus with Hollandaise sauce and prosciutto.
Fruit and vegetables.
Ornaments made of dried flowers and fruit.
Meat and sausages - the regulations must be different here where the meat is on the table and not cooled. The shops around this market had meat hanging in their window too.
There are six memorial fountains for folk singers and comedians around the market place, all donated by citizens of Munich. This one is for Liesl Karlstadt.
One of the many beer restaurants.
Turning back to the city
where we needed to sit down for tea/coffee and Apfelstrudel mit Eis und Sahne:
Rested and nourished we walked on to visit the Hunting and Fishing Museum.
The bronze boar
Inside the museum we concentrated on the fishing gear from stone age to early 20th century. We have been here before, so we skipped the hunting department. We had perfect timing: it rained while we were in, but it had stopped by the time we came out.
On the way back to the sister's home we noticed this lawn covered in tiny flowers.
I had to have a closer look. Veronica!
Next time I'll take you to something different, and show my latest finish which is just one block of the Scandinavian Christmas.
