And I am still finding myself blah blogging somehow in these travails of Germany. And it seems as if I do not blagh my usual news and social events of the commentary of the day as I usually do for some reason in my blogaholicness. And so there is more photos of my travails and travels throughout this town that I would like to post to whoever if anyone other than myself may be readng this blog. And those are a few photos above of that Chinese Beerhouse that is to be found in the English Garden of Munich, Germany and of the inside of Adolf Hitler's office where the Nazi extermination all started, that is now turned into a music conservatory with no sign of Hitlers past and Germanys grim, dark history, and from the platfrom of that Felderhalle at Königsplatz or is it the Odeonsplatz again that has a putsch memorial to fallen putsch soldiers that people passing by were once required to give one of those Adolf Hitler gruß, Hitler greetings zeig heils to, and where Hitler's mass rallies took place. And I would hope to post a photo of al the bicycles that are to be found here in Munich, as Munich is the most bike friendly place I have ever came across with its many bike trails, lanes and paths throughout this city. There are almost as more bikes on the streets as there are cars on the streets. There is even a bike symbol posted on the stop signs, a far contrast to the mean streets of New York City that is not bike friendly at all and that seems to be built for cars only where one risks their life to ride a bike down its streets where every street seems to be a highway with literally no bike paths to be found anywhere and where one can possibly become disposable road kill in one of the many pedestrian and bicyclists deaths that take place there each year, month and day, and where drivers are not even penalized or even given a traffic ticket. And what would that bicycle advocacy organization Transportation Alternatives have to say about this. And another one of those photos above with the red and white flags everywhere is of the Turkish Fußball, football soccer team celebrating their win against was it Austria?, in one of those Euro 2008 soccer games that seem to have taken over this City of Munich at the moment with Euro soccer fever. And daily and nightly there are soccer matches between European countries like Germany, Italy, Turkey, Spain, France, Croatia and other European countries I cannot think of at the moment. And everyone on the streets seem to disappear to the bars and home televisions during soccer game time like clockwork each day. And watching these games on television or bars each night seems like watching one big advertisement, as those blatent advertisements from advertisers like Nutella, McDonalds, JVC, Canon, Coca Cola, Castrol, Adidas, MasterCard, Carlberg and other advertisers that surround the soccer field are what catches my eye the most more than the soccer game itself. And this game of soccer seems to be a war and division of nationalities and nations against each other to me for some reason. And again, there are maybe more photos of this City of Munich that I would like to post and they could be passing me now. Have a great blogging day.
