We were to meet Sayuri at the Marienplatz post office immediately after Munich’s famous glockenspiel musical performance -very cloak and dagger!
About the Glockenspiel:
Taped music accompanies carved figures jousting and doing the Schalffertanz (Cooper’s Dance), first done by barrel makers in the Marienplatz in 1517 at the end of the Black Death plague.
Munich was filled with wonderful architecture, built thru the ages. Having only 2 days, it was extremely difficult to focus my eye on both the markets and the architecture. Fortunately for us, Sayuri showed us a few key buildings that revealed some nuggets of fortune. Inside city hall, exposed several gargoyles that highlighted several levels of the structure. The high sun also jeopardized the lighting subtleties within the space, making composition perplexing.
