|Lunch was so good that it was a little blurry.|
The pork was pretty great (see right)...it came with some sauerkraut, and they mercifully substituted fried potatoes instead of potato salad for me. The sausages on the other hand...well, it's not that they're not good, it's just that they are exactly what you'd get if you ordered sausage links at Perkins. Same deal. So, they tasted fine, I was just expecting something a bit more.
There's a gold ring on the fence surrounding the fountain that one is supposed to turn 3 times for good luck. It's a big tourist attraction
Finally, the city also houses the Germanisches Nationalmuseum, or museum of German culture. The museum has over 1.2 million objects in its inventory, dating from prehistoric times to the present. The most interesting to me were major works by several German artists, including Altdorfer, who I'm beginning to like.
Also on display were the two oldest known globes in existence. The one pictured is, I think, from about 1519, and does not include the Americas. The second-oldest one in the next room does.
