As planed in the day before, we went to Munich. The day started early, as we didn’t book our way in the day before. So, there we went to the train station, to book our tickets and wait for the train.
When the train finnaly got on Munich, mum decided to got to the local Tourism Information Center to get some maps with things to see on the city. On the way to find it, we saw one of those see sight bus that do a tour on the city. So, as we had no idea of what to see in the city, we embarked it.
The tour itself was quite short, about 45 minutes, with a narrator with an English worst than mine. I lost plenty of the information he said, as I couldn’t get what the fuck he was saying. Anyway, we got some nice spots to go after the tour.
Our first choice was seeing the Marienplatz, some well known place in Munich (except for me). So, there we went. On the way to the park, we had to go through one of the three entrances that still exist. On the old times, Munich had a large wall all around the city, with three big entrances. As the city grew, the wall was demolished, but they left the entrances as a remainder of that time.
On the Marienplatz itself, there is a large cathedral there, with one of those clocks with puppets and stuff. Beautiful, but we couldn’t see them move (I think it was on repairs — or maybe we got in the wrong time).
Right after the park, there is the market, were you can find anything, from beer to souvenirs. I wasn’t in a good mood, but mum was somewhat out of herself and got plenty of eating-action there. Also, it was the first time I saw mom drinking beer. She also had some of those “hot-dogs” with the salsage going way out of the bread, some shrimp and a pretzel.
After she ate, I decided to take her to other of the portals, as she couldn’t see it when we were on the bus. This portal got my attention ’cause is covered with some plant that have red leafs on the autumn, so it looked like a live portal (if you get what I mean). After some walking we found the portal and took some pictures of it. Following the street under the portal, I could spot some church smashed between two other buildings. The first thought I had is that the city walls forced the buildings to be that way. Further following the street, we get back to Marienplatz.
As there wasn’t anything else we wanted to see (or enough time to see anything else and get the train), we moved to the station. We had planned taking the train at 16:14 to return to Stuttgart but, for our surprise, the tickets for that train were completely sold out, even we arriving at the train station one hour earlier. Fortunately, there was another train at 16:44, but we had to wait another half hour to return to Stuttgart.
On the way back, we found dad already on the hotel. He invited us to dinner, but I was so tired I couldn’t move anymore, and I wasn’t hungry, so… back to my room.
