No snow… but nice crispy cold winter weather with almost all blue sky! Well X-mas day itself was cloudy and grey :-( but we just stayed in the hotel.
Did I say hotel? That, our hotel, was pretty cool – what with 5 stars and an indoor pool and jacuzi =o). So what did I do on X-mas day…? See below…
The world is definitely changing if even in Bavaria you find Buddha next to the Bible :-)!
One of the quotes on the wall in the lobby
And that quote will be my quote of the month:
…niemand, der sich selbst Kennenlernt, bleibt so wie er vorher war. – Thomas Mann
You KNOW you're in a posh hotel when... they have especially composed elevator music... :S
X-mas day, outside it's cold and grey, so you head to the pool...
... and to the jacuzi... =D
And a great time was had by all (I guess even more so by the two, obviously gay, guys who remained alone after I left the pool… :-O)
Impressions of the city…
Weinachtsmarkt at Marienplatz (& Neues Rathaus)
If this doesn't make you smile... :-)
OK one of my arty-farty pics (at er... Residenz)
People basking in the winter sun...
...and others enjoying a -rather good!- chamber ensemble
The lake was partly frozen over
That lake is the Kleinhesseloher See in the Englischer Garten.
Can I offer you a Jägermeister, sir...? (" 'n Jägermeister, m'neer?")
Feldherrnhalle (at Odeonsplatz) by night
