It looks tempting doesn’t it, especially for a Butcher’s descendant (me!). But in reality .. we shared this amongst 5 of us. Marcus and Karen our hosts from Fürstenfeldbruck . I agree with Marcus on his observation about all the people around us including ourselves. Everyone was happy, chatting loudly, some even howling with laughter .. all this at the Andechs Monastry of the Benedictine order famous for “Ora Et Labora” (i.e. work is prayer, prayer is work). I guess when we really “pray and work” the whole as aspect of “play” gets included as well …

I think I didn’t manage to tell Marcus I wanted a smaller glass …

As you can see, my Mainland Chinese friends are in a celebrative mood too …

I did get some “inspirational” thoughts after this visit … but I’ll share that in another post. Cheers! Prost! (in German!)
