Here are some of the odd ball photos of things I've discovered
wandering around Munich. Above is the symbol of Bayern, a monk!
found inside the Rathaus in downtown Munich. The Rathaus is
the large central municipal building that looks like a Gothic Cathedral.
Somehow, thismonstrously huge building survived the bombing of World War II.
As I poked my nose into various halls and side rooms, I came across
this truly bizarre stained glass window depicting George Washington
and Benjamin Franklin. In the middle are the words "Liberty."
It is worth noting that downstairs from this window ( and there was another
depicting Abraham Lincoln , Thomas Edison and Andrew Carnegie) is a small memorial to the 1000 Jews who were taken away to Dachau from Munich in one fell swoop in, I believe, 1943. It is the only public memorial to the Holocaust outside of the museums that I have found. Maybe the stained glass was put in after the War? Not sure.
This strange lifesized cow found in the ViktraulienMarkt that has US dollars shellacked into it's legs.

|A rebuilt church to the south of Munich-nice light.|

|Every army had to have a drum cannon-my guess is you could hear this thing 20 miles away|
|One market we visited was selling just household products including one stall devoted just to bras.|
