Dachau and Augsburg
Today Gina and planned to go to Dachau and then Augsburg to walk around and attend a BBQ that her boyfriend’s co-workers were planning. We started the day heading to Dachau and spending a few hours there. Gina had been there before when she was 16, so it was nice she joined me.
We spent most of the time walking through the buildings and reading the information they had about Dachau and the life of those who passed through the gates. One of the things I found strange that I didn’t see at other camps I had visited on my trip were all the memorial churches for different religions within the grounds.
After we visited the crematoriums, we headed to Augsburg. But, as we were waiting at the bus stop we got a text that the BBQ was canceled because of the weather. It had only sprinkled a little, but oh well. We decided to go to Augsburg anyways and just walk around the town. We went into a few churches and took pictures before heading back to Munich. Overall, I felt it was a nice little town. I enjoyed the visit. It may look like every other Bavarian town, but there is always something unique to find.
That night, we ended up playing a board game, Der Name Der Rose, which I enjoied very much. Ross, Gina’s boyfriend, also made a great dinner. I also got to meet to other American’s who were over and who live and work in Munich. It’s nice to have those in-house social gatherings. I haven’t experienced one before this in ages!
