When I got back, I cooked some pasta, then went to the lebowski bar with a Canadian guy and Brazilian girl I had met the night before. We had white russians. We didnt stay out very late, since we were all leaving the next day. The canadian was also headed to Munich so we decided to catch the same train. It took about 6 hours, and I arrived in Munich around 5. My hostel was right across the street from the train station, so I just walked there. This is a huge hostel, supposedly voted one of the top 10 in the world, but they dont have a kitchen, which sucks. I went to the bar for my free complimentary beer. It was an ealry night, but I met an american named John who had just finished Law school. We decided the next day we were gonna go on some freer walking tour at 11...So at 11 the next day we were the only 2 there, so the tour guide didnt really think it was worth it. Since we had showed up and didnt get the tour, he offered us the 3 PM Beer Garden tour for half price...Deal! So me and John wandered around the city until then. Theres a lot of Roman type architecture here, although it was built about 40 years ago. Theres a huge park, which we wandered into right where the nude section was, and immediately regretted the move, and after about 2 minutes we both wanted to go home and shower
We got back to the hostel just about time for the beergarden tour. There was 9 of us (couple Australians, candians, and 2 girls from Texas...), including the tour guide. He took us to about 5 beergardens and gave us a little history at each one. The one we ended up at was your typical, waitresses in lederhusen, oompa loompa band, giant tent filled with picnin tables of drunk people, Octoberfest type beer garden. Needless to say, by this point we were pretty drunk, so we commenced to stand on the picnin tables, and sing drinking songs, asking for photos with every waitress and old German couple that walked by. It was a lot fun. Sometime a couple beers later the group had disolved into the night. Me and John decided we were gonna go to the carnival outside and go on every ride there, so thats what we did. Sometime I believe around ten we made it back to the hostel and went to the bar...but didnt last very long.
Today ill probably just go the park and read or something. And figure out when Im gonna leave for Rome.
