With all of this beauty, why would we need anything more? Well, once in a while we like to mingle with the locals and the best way to do that is to go into our little village's center. Below is a view of the large metropolis of Pasing-Obermenzing. For my son, Shane, and his lovely wife--notice the gentlemen on the left seated on their camp stools. It is our version of Dearborn! I took this photo from the outdoor cafe just in front of the train station. The Donner K-Bab is just inside, and so is the Deutch Bahn ticket office, a tobacco shop, a cafe, the news store, two bakeries, a carry-out, photo shop, a Burger King, a travel bureau, and a ticketmaster for Munich's operas, symphonies, theater, and olther cultural events. Outside of the train station are clothing stores, shoe stores, hairdressers, a post office, butcher, more bakeries, optical shops, restaurants, and every conceivable shop you could imagine.
Our little village must be something to see because today there was a field trip to the village square. Here is another photo I took with my trusty i-phone of the elementary students taking a walk through Pasing-Obermenzing. It is anyone's guess where they might have been going. I'm sure they all had a great outing. And why not? They are in "our little slice of heaven!"
