Having quickly accomplished by one mission for the day (buying travel sized shampoo and conditioner), I decided to celebrate the sunny 70 degree day with a Prosecco Aperol and some people watching at a café in the old town. Refreshed from my spritz, I explored the 20th century through art, graphics, design, and architecture at the Pinakotech der Moderne.
I had a late lunch in another café on a semi-hidden square in the old town: grilled perch with truffled potato salad and a small green salad. The waitress expertly matched a white wine to my meal, and I lingered at the cafe watching people stroll by. Since everything is fairly close, I took a walk through the Englischer Garten after lunch. It must still be a little chilly, because there were no nude sunbathers in the park. Or, maybe I missed them. I enjoyed a scoop of walnut ice cream before heading home to make dinner (steamed kohlrabi w/ fresh dill and pork chops). And, after dinner, Brad and I walked around the Hirschgarten and watched the sun set.
There are, of course, other ways to have a perfect day, but yesterday I couldn't have asked for anything more... except for Brad to have had as good a day as I did.
