Munich, Germany Day 73

 Today was a sad and embarrassing day to wake up to. I’m sad because the Canucks lost the Stanley Cup. That sucks, but not nearly as badly as the disgusting display of bad behaviour that was happening on the streets of Vancouver after the loss.  Again. This exact same thing happened when they lost to the New York Rangers in 1994. I just don’t understand what is wrong with these people. I am so sorry for my city. Those people aren’t real fans, they’re opportunists. What does setting cars on fire and breaking store windows accomplish? Don’t these idiots realise that these types of actions are the very reason why there are so few festivals and fun city events to do in Vancouver? That they are the reason we are called “No fun city?” It is absolutely shameful, and I sincerely hope that the world at large doesn’t think that is what Vancouver is. From what I could see in some of the clips I saw online, it’s mostly young men, and some women. Is this what happens when an entire generation is told that they’re not losers? In school kids are coddled, no more winners or losers, just different stages of WINNING!  “You didn’t lose, you’re just the 3rd winner!” Can they not handle losing, is that the problem? Are they really that angry? And just what the f*ck do these spoiled brats really have to be angry about? I hope at least some of them are identified and publicly shamed. Someone should start a website where you can post pictures and others can name the offenders. Wouldn’t that be great? How would that look on your resume kids? Yup, a real winner. Rant over, thank you!
White asparagus = spargel!
You know I love the gnomes!
Pretzels… Mmmmmmm…
Today was a nice lax day. My cold is still kicking me in the a*s, so I walked around old town Munich for a while and had some lunch. I had a sandwich that had condiments in it! I was so excited after eating just bread and meat sandwiches for so long now.  I did a little shopping and just enjoyed hanging out and people watching.  After a 2 hour siesta I headed out in search of some dinner. Munich is expensive, especially in the tourist heavy areas.  Despite beer being so plentiful, it’s not as cheap as I thought it would be.  But god it’s good… It might sound weird, but I had Chinese food for dinner! In Germany they don’t call it Chinese food though, it’s “China” food. Funny. I’m going to be in Germany for a while, so I’ll have lots of opportunity to eat pork and potato products of all kinds, so I thought Chinese would be a nice change. It was actually really good!
I just noticed he word “sex” over my shoulder…
My favourite…
 Looking towards Neues Rathaus. (New Town Hall)
They do like their pork products in Germany.
What (is it?) Why (is it for sale?) and Who (would buy this?)
But I am seriously considering starting a cute wooden German figurine collection. How cute are they? We have always have Christmas tree decorations just like these and I LOVE them!

    Oh man, those beers look soooo good. And so does your man! (I mean that in the most respectful way.) Enjoy the rest of your time in Munich!

    Yes, what is up with the stuffed, winged squirrel? Very strange.

    Definitely a shame about the riot in Vancouver. That stuff happens fairly frequently in America, too. Not that that should make you feel better. 😉
