Paula-Munich, Germany, 10:10am - 11:20am

I woke to a rather grey and wet day. However the Auerdult had started and I thought I would limp there. It is just around the corner and I would made it home without trouble if tiring early.

Auerdult means "fair in the meadow" and is the biggest European crockery market and second hand sale since the 14. century. The vintage merry-go-around for the kids is included.

I rather like the vintage stuff and the part of the second hand exchange - even when the flowers are fake...

The handmade table cloths I like too, this particular one is actually made of Brussels embroidery.

I adore the handmade and handpainted pipes of the old merry go around.

Well, well, the Bavarian housewifes will find all their heart desire and even more of what they wont need ever! They love their traditional painted crockery but prefer these to be cleaned with a Hi Tech micro fibre cloth ;-)))

This is so very much Bavaria - Tradition & Hi Tech, Laptop & Lederhos'n.

I started to limp home earlier then expected. I found myself leaning against a wall shaken in laughters when I figured that even the oldest, frail lady is walking faster and passing me!

And my eyes caught this snail. I found it even more hilarious - fitting my speed - the new walking companion of mine is a snail!!!

Hope you all have a great (walking) day.

Paula, I love that we get to visit Germany everyday with you and get to go window shopping too!
I can just picture you hobbling or crutches, bent over laughing and than all of a sudden stopping to get a picture of a tiny snail. Priceless CF moment!
I so admire your CF spirit!
You are a valuable addition to our team!(well, everyone here is...but you know what I mean;)

Awww, Paula. Love your new companion! I don't think they make cameras that small, though.

Your photos were terrific today. The merry-go-round made me smile. I must say, your photos appeared so "traditional" in the respect that it is what I imagine if I were to come visit you in Germany.

Lovely post. I'm glad you are hobbling with us! ;)

Oh I just love flea markets and farmer's markets. Thanks for the treat of seeing one in Germany. Are those lilacs still in bloom? Lucky you.
