Munich Day 2, 08 Oct 2012

Marienplatz ¦ waiting for the figurines to move at 12noon
I wasn't alone on my little trip out to Munich city on October 8th 2012 --
there was someone I got to hang out with...

08.10.12 Viktualienmarkt, Munich
A bakery near / at Viktualienmarkt
Just before taking this picture of the shop's window front, a man came up to me and said,
"Nicht fotografieren!" 
Oops! He caught me in good time.
"Essen," the man said cheekily while walking away.
I would have had one, but it was too close to the lunch hour.

08.10.12 Sushi Sano restaurant, Munich
Lunch at Sushi-sano
Time for Essen, it was, and we had a lovely sushi lunch. That was all mine, by the way.
And to walk off that lunch, New Friend led me around Munich to see some sights.
