Clear sunny skies returned this morning and we set out just before 10:00 a.m.
and stopped a few blocks away for a light breakfast at
(founded in 1825).
We walked on and stopped in briefly at
St. Michael's Church Munich
St. Peter's Church Munich
before pressing on and arriving at the
just after 11:00 a.m.
As our friends had promised, this was quiet the museum of science and technology!
We enojoyed the ships,
airplanes -- including an
Messerschmitt Me 262
(the first production jet fighter plane),
rockets -- a V1 and V2,
and a collection of "computers" ranging from slide rules to adding machines to early digital computers.
Nearly 3 hours later we sat down for a simple lunch at the museum restaurant
and then departed for the local
so Nate could buy a model.
We walked over to the
and spent just over an hour marveling at the ornate buildings, rooms, tapestries, paintings, furniture, and giltwork.
We had some down time at the hotel and Ben picked up our laundry.
We walked a few kilometers to
for dinner with
a 1983 Northwestern Kellogg graduate.
After trying the local
Augustiner Brau Munchen
beer (a bit light for Ben's taste),
we enjoyed a bottle of
2000 Chateau Cos d'Estournel
with our dinner and a delightful half bottle of
2000 Bacchus Trockenbeerenauslese Sommeracher Katzenkopf Weingut Ostreicher Franken
