St. Goar, a tiny town on the bank of the Rhine.
||Views of St. Goar. The upper right picture is our hotel. A foggy castle is on the lower left (you can barely make out the "HOTEL" sign on it).|
|Wine tasting in a cellar. Yes, those are wine bottles used as candle holders. The old guy in the yellow jacket says, "Wine gets better with age. Just like men."|
|Goofing around in the hotel.|
||Miscellaneous pictures of the Rhine, a castle, and the inside of our bus in case you're curious.|
Munich, a much larger city.
||Some nice architecture. That's a close-up of the statue in the center of the three arches with me at the bottom.|
||The BMW museum, shaped like a carburetor! I'm standing just outside the museum, with the Olympic Stadium's tower in the background. Hey, could that red contraption be a Smart Car prototype?|
||Some views of Olympic Stadium. Well, not really the stadium itself, but the area around it and its weird buildings. Here is a real "olympic size swimming pool."|
||The Glockenspiel! Oh, the thrill of listening to chimes and watching little figures twirl around!|
|No, it's not a statue. It's a street performer who will do amusing things for deutsche marks!|
|A tasty restaurant with a brass pig holding the door open. I had a fish plate. Jimmy had the pork knuckle, pictured here.|
|The Hofbräuhaus, a huge beer hall! Check out the size of those mugs!|
|My table at the Hofbräuhaus.|
||Incredible, but true! Here is a close-up from the picture on the upper left. Pablo's hand is stuck in the mug handle! It took some beer lubrication to finally free it.|
|"Get down from there!"|
