Munich on Saturday, April 5th, 2014. The day before the trip to Kazakhstan. Apples are from Kazakhstan – so I’ve heard. The new capital is Astana, the old one Almaty. That’s where we will be going. I am curious and excited. But today I am sitting in one of Munich’s great beergardens, the Aumeister at Englischer Garten.

Beer is from Munich. That is my personal perceived truth. And I am enjoying it – both the beer and my view on the world.
