90 Minutes in Munich
I spent 90 minutes early this evening wandering around Munich before the World Cup Final between France and Italy - still no winner.
Here some impressions.
A group of Italians in a café in the Fünf Höfe Shopping Centre.
Three Italians looking for a giant screen.

A French exchange group from Le Mans, Bordeaux and Lyon - they started singing the Marseillese when I asked them to pose:-)

A couple of kids on a lion at the Feldherrnhalle, Odeon Square, who have had enough of it all.

When I asked the French kids to pose they were pretty stiff, so I said imagine France has just won and they started cheering. Then someone started singing the Marseillaise, a few knelt down and all sang from the heart. Passersby on the Munich main square stopped and cheered:-)
The Italian guys asked me to send them the photos and the Australian was chuffed that some girl wanted to capture his chest:-)
Quite heartwarming and fun!
