Bret is in Europe right now, and had this to say:
Munich in one word: Beer
Munich in two words: Beer beer
Three words: Lots of beer
Seriously, I now realize that any serious beer drinker's life isn't complete without a visit here (except the Haufbrauhaus, which is German for "tourist trap"). How could it have taken me 40 years to figure that out?
And check out the retarded things I can do on this keyboard: öÖäÄß§µ
Off to Prague in the morning. Take care out there.
UPDATE FROM PRAGUE:
Prague is also an incredible beer town, with the advantage that half a liter of aweseome beer costs about $1.50. A little cheaper than Oslo. [Ed. note from Lee: Bret and I visited Oslo together back in 2003, and while it's a beautiful city, it's also ungodly expensive. A puny glass of beer there will cost you $7-$10. One glass! And not even a full pint! The Texpatriate can tell you all about it.]
