Munich Germany, (Munchen, Deutchland) As we fly in over the German country side I remember how beautiful and organised everything looks. It's like a patchwork of farmland with neat and tidy towns and cities placed in perfect position amongst it.
There are many good things about Munich and Germany, it has an extremely well integrated public transport system with U underground/subway, S rail, H Trams, and B buses
Ok that's the good bits! What is annoying about Munich and Germany - they still smoke everywhere... and I mean everywhere... inside, outside, it's disgusting. They are not a very friendly bunch and could learn a lot from Canadians and Americans. Then there is the cost of everything - they use the Euro as do all EU countries, but to give you an idea, if you pay $3.95 for a Coffee in OZ then it will be E4.99=$7.00 here in Munich. It hurts every time you buy anything here. Oh! And when you have finished drinking your coffee, you will have to PAY to Pee!!! It costs to go to the toilet here.... OMG
Now for those of you who know me well - you will know that I dislike MacDonald's (or as I call them Yuk-donald's) But I am tempted to write to the GM of MacDonald's thanking him personally for bringing them to Germany. You can buy something other than fatty cheese and sausage meat with bread..... and that's saying something hehehehe you will also not pay a fortune for it, you can eat in a smoke free environment, and best of all......you can PEE for FREE!!!!!!!!! Praise the Lord for MacDonald's and Starbucks!!!!!
