We tried to enjoy München, really. But the weather to-day was simply awful. It was pouring rain with gusting winds all day and also quite cold. I would have frozen had I not packed a long-sleeve shirt at the last minute.

We went to the Egyptian Museum, which was pretty neat in that we were out of the rain, but there were no English captions, making it less interesting than it could have been. Because I am typing this at the end of the trip, I can tell you that the lack of English captions in museums proved to be true more often than not on this trip. I only expect them because they have been present in other countries to which I have travelled where English is not used as often as it is here. Usually the only option, then, is an audioguide that you hold to your ear--a piece of technology I hate. What better way to cut yourself off from everyone else than the audioguide? Plus, way too much information. I would definitely prefer a booklet where I can choose the info I would like to read.

We tried to find other things throughout München and were somewhat successful but mainly just cold and drenched.
