Munich - Rothenburg - Day 4

Our last day in Munich was bitterly cold, just barely above freezing. Since I had only brought short sleeve shirts along with me, I made a quick stop at the C&A department store and purchased a black, turtle-neck sweater.

Those who remember the Sprockets sketches from Saturday night live will appreciate the irony of my clothing choice. 'Sprockets' was a mock-German talk show featuring Mike Myers in a black turtleneck.

On the way to the train station we came across a giant "O". There didn't seem to be any obvious reason for the giant "O", but SJ didn't care. After 2 weeks with her midwestern grandparents if you "O! - H!" to SJ responds with an automatic "I! - O!".

From Munich, we took a train to Rothenburg ob der Tauber, which is an amazinglyl well-preserved medieval town, complete with an intact city walls and several towers. It was probably the most picturesque town we've seen in Germany.

We arrived in the early evening, after most of the crowds had already departed. SJ enjoyed running around the castle gardens and climbing all over what appeared to be some type of sculpture piece.
