But with all my homework now completed—and hopefully my dishes, too, before German Readings tomorrow—I will be able to leave Ann Arbor and school behind, get on the plane, and have a completely open, relaxed, and ridiculously excited mind for everything in Munich.

I'm looking forward to all of the food in Munich basically. Especially the weiss bratwurst mit semmel in the take-away delis, the sauerkraut, rotkohl, spaetzle, and pretty much anything on the menu at Andechs.
One of the many rewards of traveling with Janet, is that she knows the best places to eat in town and the best thing to order on each menu! :)

I believe it was the famous author (and famous Münchner, too!) Thomas Mann who once proclaimed "München hat mich." And I, for one, am taken with this fascinating Bavarian city. Once bitten by the "bug," you are infected for life. It was in the summer of 2005 that I first succumbed and I have yet to satisfy the itch generated that July. Munich is a magnificent and lively city - one with a rich culture and an even more remarkable history. I have surrendered myself to the city and have been infinitely rewarded by the aesthetic and civil beauty and grace inherent to Munich. I am thrilled and quite eager to return to an environment which I find inspiring and which, for me, only appreciates in value upon each subsequent visit. Munich has a hold of me - and I am glad that she does!

There are traditional sets as well, of course, but the crazy ones really make my day.
So yes. Weird things! Awesome things!
Oh, and here's a picture from the inside of the opera house (where I guess you're not supposed to take pictures? Whoops):
I took this from my fifth-balcony nosebleed seat. But you know what? No matter where you sit in this place, you feel kinda fancy.
