The Hofbrauhaus is Munich's most famous beer-and-sing place. You should
at least one evening there if you are a cultured man. I went there three times. The
first time, it was great. The second
time, it was OK. The third time, it was a disaster. Thus, you should go there and
have a great time once, but you should go somewhere else next time. There are many
other great places in Munich.

a month-long celebration during the month of September. Farmers work hard
during the summer and celebrate their results during in the early fall.
This tradition exists everywhere in the world, but Germans in this area
do in a way to deserve attention from the world.

Pope Benedict XVI was a student and a professor at this university
Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich is one of the oldest schools of
higher education in Europe. Many history making people spent their productive
years at this university. Among them were the physicists named
Werner Heisenberg, Ludwig Boltzann, Arnold Sommerfeld, Max von Laue, Wilhelm Roentgen, and Theodor Hanch,
as well as many non-physicists including Pope Benedict XVI, Konrad Adenauer, Thomas Mann, and many more.
Here are some photos from this university.

- At this book store, I met
two students from Birmingham. One of them was studying philosophy. I started
talking about Kant and Hegel. She filled in with Friedrich Nietzsche and Arthur
I then asked her where Einstein stand among philosophers. She said she knew Einstein was a philosopher, but could not figure out his coordinate because she does not understand his physics. I said she does not need to know the details of Einstein's physics, and I then gave her my Einstein page.
- It is always a pleasure to have a photo with students 60 years younger. Alas, I look like a grandpa to them.
