Out and about in Munich...

Tanner & Courtney eating German "Elephant Ears" in the English Garden - delicious

Next our group headed to Odeonsplatz; there were beautiful gardens & flowers in the square

We found this memorial to the "Weisse Rose" Nazi Resistance group - early in the semester we watched a movie about these University students who were executed for their peaceful demonstrations (note lisa's sad face:)

The fountains are lovely and the weather couldn't have been more perfect

Lis & Tanner enjoying the sunshine

Courtney & Nicole revived the princess pose for Munich

The following day we headed to the Olympic stadium - Jeff visited the BMW museum while Tanner took a dip in the Olympic pool and the girls did a little row-boating with Andrew. Dr. Hills and I toured the stadium and found the memorial statue to the Jewish athletes who were killed here in 1972 by Palestinian terrorists
