The weather is good: …but my cough lingers
Sunday March 11, 2018
For today I had planned an itsy-bitsy, teeny-weeny little tour from one train station to another, along a river, just 23 km long and flat as a pancake. The weather was good enough, downright mild after a cold February. But my good sense and mainly my husband said it wasn’t a good idea. As a matter of fact he wasn’t going to let me go. So I – cough cough cough – gave up the idea for today.
Instead my husband and I rode our bikes in Munich and had a look at the St.Patrick’s Day Parade. This has become a big thing in Munich, I don’t know why because St. Patrick isn’t a Bavarian saint. The event was started by a small gathering of Irish expats in 1996 and has become a massive parade of over 15,000 participants and spectators. I always love marching bands and parades and marching bagpipers were a novelty. It was lots of fun.
When we had seen enough we went for a pizza.
It was a very short ride. Should it count towards the challenge? Well, if my planned theme doesn’t materialize, I’ll include this one. Perhaps the new theme will be “Inside the Circle”.
