Munich's English Garden (Saturday June 5, 2010)

We had lunch in the English Garden at the Chinese Tower.

Ethan and Pyul ate the roasted chicken - the BEST Roasted Chicken EVER!

I ordered the fried pork cutlet with fries and a giant pretzel.  Pyul and Ethan chose the right thing. Oliver ate a couple different types of sausages. 

The craziest thing happened while we were eating lunch.  I just happened to look up and saw my cousin Dave who I haven't seen in nearly 10 years!  He's working in Austria and happened to come into Munich for the day to run some errands - what a small world! 

In the afternoon, we relaxed at an outdoor bar and enjoyed the most amazing drink - rhubarb beer.  My favorite in Munich was Radler (lemonade and beer), but the rhubarb beer was so good.  We'll have to see if we can replicate this at home.  Pyul's been raving about this dessert that we just had to try and it was really good.  It's like chunks of pancake with apples and and raisins - delicious!  I couldn't stop eating it! I can't remember what it's called. 

Later this evening we took an overnight train from Munich to Venice.  We had a first class sleeper car and it was surprisingly comfy.  It was nice that we had our own toilet and shower and it worked out perfectly. 

Before we caught the train we picked up some snacks at the grocery store - cheese, prosciutto, bread and wine. 

It was pretty late, but I was craving a little snack so we ordered curry wurst (it was so good yesterday), sausage with ketchup and curry powder, and a salad. 

Next stop, Venice!
