The British Are Coming

Even though this is the call from Paul Revere during the US revolution versus the British, perhaps it may fit on days in Munich. British Expats make up the highest population of English speaking foreigners in Munich, tied with Americans. There are 1.27 million people living in Munich, and Brits make up about 5000, or .4%. This is relatively low compared to other major cities in Europe, but ranks high among other English speaking expats, which include Irish (.07%), Canadian (.06%), and Australian (.05%). However there are plenty of other non-English speaking foreigners in Munich. The largest minority are the Turkish with 43,000 residents or 3.4% of the population. Croatians come in next with 25,104 or 2% of the population. Then comes a mix of Serbian, Greek, Italian and Polish.

Oh my gosh, I just saw one of these in Phoenix Arizona yesterday! The mirror didn't match the car at all.
