The Olympic Stadium and Sunny Munich

The 1972 Summer Olympics were hosted by the city of Munich and we were fortunate to be able to visit the complex today.  The ’72 Olympics had some very special athletic moments including Mark Spitz winning, at that time, a record setting seven swimming gold medals all in world record time. And, of course, The Darling of the Games, Olga Korbut from the Soviet Union won three gold medals in gymnastics.  However the Munich Massacre will go down in history as the most tragic memory from the 1972 Olympics.  At 4:30 AM on September 5, eleven Israeli  athletes were kidnapped and murdered by a Palestinian group known as Black September.

On a brighter note, it was a beautiful sunny and warm day today and we thoroughly enjoyed our time outside.

As I said earlier it was a beautiful day in Munich today.  Don’t be jealous Manitoba.  LOL………


The Beamer Place

To all of you who have had your fill of Cathedrals, Basilicas, Churches and Museums we have something a little different for you.  We toured the BMW Museum, oops, I guess it’s another museum.  I am not much of a car or bike admirer, but I did enjoy going through the museum.  Being a German company it was extremely well organized and put together.  I would recommend a visit even if you are not a car lover.
