Our next destination was the English garden which was a 3 kilometer walk away. It is definitely autumn here, making the walk to the garden nice (in my mind, Laura finds it too cold) as it was a tad chilly but perfect with a sweater. Once at the park, we stopped at the Chinese tower to eat a Bavarian doughnut and take a rest as our legs were killing us. Afterward we went to explore the park and it was beautiful! We ended up being at the part of the park near Marienplatz so walked there instead of taking the metro. As we walked there we realized that we'd been near one of the streets when we were lost the first day. It was fun to now know where we were. We also found the US Consulate-it's near the English garden.
It was then almost time for dinner so we walked around for a bit then grabbed a quick dinner before heading to the Hofbrauhaus which is Munich's largest and most famous drinking hall. It was full of people, fun, and live music! Laura and I sat at a table and ordered a half liter beer and pretzel to share. While neither of us are nuts about the taste of beer, we enjoyed the experience and had fun taking pictures with the beer and making funny faces after taking a sip. Then it was time to head home. Even after being here for a few days, we were able to get to the train and know the right direction and what stop to get off on without a map!
