Up before 6am, I showered, repacked my bag and quietly left Matt's place for a 20 minute walk to the train station. There I bought and devoured a Nestle KitKat bar and boarded my train to Munich. The rural scenery was very beautiful and passed by quickly along with several cities. I slept most of the way to Munich arriving precisely on time at 11:28am.

Jason and I went to his place to unload weight from my bag and then headed out for lunch at a falafel house. After consuming many calories, we headed over to the Deutsches Museum to hit the highlights, including a room full of 19th century steam engines, milling factories, sundials, a miniature bricklaying factory, among a multitude of other amazing technology exhibits.

After the museum we walked in the direction of English Garden, one of the largest public parks in the world. It was a unseasonably warm and sunny day in February and people were walking around everywhere. A group of surfers was surfing in a drainage canal. At some point we walked past the infamous square of book burning as well as the building where world leaders had met the day before.

To wrap up the day we took the train to the southernmost terminal of Grunwald to take a walk around a near-surburb. Tramming back, we had dinner at a Mexican restaurant La Taquería. We walked a bit more after dinner and then headed back to Jason's place for the night. After talking a bit I crashed on Jason's rug with a blanket.
