Lazy Afternoon in the Englischer Garten

Lazy Afternoon in the Englischer Garten

A beautiful sunny Saturday afternoon. The people of Munich came out to enjoy nature in the middle of the city. And I was there too on my last free day (no travel) in Europe. Back in 1972 I apartment sat in Schwabing just off the Englischer Garten. It was important for me to retrace my steps and see the old neighborhood. Of course, it had changed in 40 years. There was no movie theater presenting Jane Fonda as Barbarella. The poster store on the corner was now an upscale art gallery. I did pass the block of apartments that had briefly been home to me.

The old poster store.
