Travels without my camera

Today was an exploring day in Munich. I collected my course books from a bookshop close to the university and wandered into town from there. I had meant to go via Leopoldstrasse, but missed that and ended up in Odeonsplatz, which is conveniently close to an english language bookshop and I was able to pick up a copy of the latest Charlie Stross novel.

I inquired about some other stuff and they are happy to order books, but seemed to be worried that I was complacent about paying over €28 for a book! I didn’t have the heart to say that I do it all the time at home. So we eventually agreed that we would wait for a cheaper edition, or that I might buy it on impulse if they get the hardcover in. toytown recommends a few engish language stores around the city, so I will check them out in due course.

After that I roamed around town, not taking pictures, for a while, until the heat and humidity became too much and I had to take refuge in a convenient bistro. Later on I made some initial exploration of the Olympiapark, but didn’t get very far. I really need a camera for there too.

Classes start tomorrow at 9am…

    I bet you love how many little bookstores there are around the city. I was surprised to hear about the Buchpreisgesetz though

    congrats on the new domain btw
