Our plane trip out of Philadelphia to Munich was cancelled, so we had to stand in line for a few hours to get things rescheduled for the next day. Everyone was understandably upset but the ways people were acting were ridiculous. The way people were treating the people behind the counter was counterproductive but mostly annoying. Anyway, they ran out of allocated hotel rooms so we had to find our own. We were told we would be reimbursed for it but we have not yet taken action on that since we are not in the states.

The flight, then, was the next day and the only thing that kind of cut through the boredom was watching Stranger than Fiction which was not nearly as good as I expected. Wholly improbable romance. Lame ending, too. Oh, we did also talk to a guy on the plane who gave us lots of good advice about travelling in Germany, but also some bad (e.g. after we told him how cheaply we wanted to do the trip he suggested we rent a Ferrari for 300 euros one day to drive on the autobahn).

We had no desire to be in Frankfurt and caught a train out of there to München right off to make it to our reserved hostel. Taking trains in Germany is easy once you figure it out; at that time, we had not yet figured it out and had a few difficulties.
