The Fall weather is in full swing now as you see from these pictures. I was gone for almost 3 weeks and came back to Burghausen to a whole new look!
I arrived at the Munich airport at 5:30 in the morning after touching down in a fairly heavy fog. The two hour taxi ride was very hushed and misty. The temperatures are now in the 50's during the days and near or below freezing at night. I am always amazed at how the place "feels."
The street/city sounds were a bit muffled with the damp air and leaves ...all in the coolness...even though there seemed to be even more people out than I remembered seeing in the warm days of Summer. Hats are SO popular here, I've noticed. I guess it is because people spend their lives outdoors and don't just run through it. They need to dress appropriately for it to be comfortable.I made these pictures right before noon when the sun decided to peek out a bit through the overcast.
Below: I got my bike out to go visit a friend after 2pm,
but when she didn't answer the bell at her gate, I ended up taking a bike ride to the castle. (The light was noticably dimmer). There was a touch of wood smoke in the air that seemed very different from what I've been used to in the US - something like sandelwood - kind of spicy. To add to moodiness of the day, everyone (children included) seemed to be talking in quiet tones.
Its very nice to be back. Now I will have to get used to bundling up with a hat, coat and scarf when I go out for a ride.
