it's a small world

Some Saturdays, when I do our grocery shopping, I stop by a local Cap 'n Cork and stock up on imported beer from Munich. Today I met Günther there, who is working at that liquor store a couple of days a week. I noticed a German accent, and his name tag was a give-away.

He had moved from München-Schwabing to Pennsylvania fourty years ago. There he found his wife, also a German, from Braunschweig. They now live in Fort Wayne, but he still visits his old friend Albert in München, about every three years. He said München changed a lot.  The place where he lived was called *Feilitzsch-Platz* back then. It is now *Münchner Freiheit*.



Wie interressant wen man alles so trifft! Ich habe gar nicht gewusst dass die Strasse/Platz umbenannt wurde. Ich habe angenommen das hat schon immer so geheissen.
