Yesterday the “masses” have gone on a tour of the city, and I have saved myself from that walk around town. Later today we’ll visit Neuschwanstein Castle, once home of King Ludwig 2 of Bavaria, then I’ll have to walk, the halls and other assorted rooms. The organisers of the convention kept me and another less able man in mind, we don’t have to walk down the mountain, a taxi will bring us to the next stop, the Castle Brewery, for lunch. [It's good to know the King].
I was invited yesterday evening to have dinner with 5 Presidents, these are the chairmen and women of the 5 associations. And the more you drink, the easier you speak the language. I just tasted some samples on offer, smoked salmon, catfish, chicken with a herb filling, very tasty vegetables, and of course dessert, something with chocolate and Kaiserschmarrn with fresh fruits. I didn’t ate the filling pasta, potatoes or rice, only good healthy food.
