Mei Ling and I tried our hardest to talk Kristi into coming with us on the rest of the trip, but she wouldn’t budge.  She said something about being responsible and that she had to work.  I don’t know. We finally gave up and made our way down to Munich.  We were only in Munich for about a day and a half but we crammed in SO much.  We visited Dachau, the first Nazi Concentration Camp established during WWII, which is just outside the city.  Wow.  It was such a somber place, but we were so glad we went. It’s hard to fathom what the people who were held there went through, but walking the grounds and seeing the buildings and reading their stories made it so much more real to us.

Most of our time was spent wandering around the city center.  We climbed to the top of a bell tower to get a good view.

We visited an outdoor market.

We hung out in a Bavarian Palace for a couple of hours.

And we watched some guys surfing in a canal in the big city park, The English Garden.  Crazy, but true!
