True Bavarian Gusto

The 850 year Munich anniversary party continued today, with an absolutely packed Altstadt. There were places today, where you simply couldn’t move. They city came out in force, and as I understand it there were a few people coming in from out of town for the party. As the city planned to pass out 850 pieces of birthday cake on one side of Marienplatz, a mobile lumber yard was brought through the center of town. And what can be described only as “true Bavarian men” went to work on a tree trunk the size of a beer keg – taking breaks of course for a smoke of a pipe or a drink of a beer of course. The Frauenkirche and the Rathaus look on from the background with noted approval.
