I’m pretty good with directions. Hardly ever get lost. But here in Munich I can’t find my way across the street.
We’re in the old part of Munich, the City Center called Marienplatz. This is where the city began back in 1100. It was a walled city with a moat, so the streets are all crooked and cockeyed and make no sense at all.
We came out of the train station, luggage in hand, and immediately walked the wrong way. Across the plaza, under the Glockenspiel Clock, and into cobblestone alleys. Whumpa whumpa went the suitcase wheels.
Ach du großer Gott!
