From Falcon Tour Blogger Annie Lawer: Amazing Day in Munich!

Hello again everyone. Our 2nd full day in Germany was just as amazing and busy as the first! Although today was a little more gloomy than yesterday. It was raining most of the afternoon. The morning was very nice though, made even better by an amazing preformance at St. Lucas Church. We preformed at the easter service and then had a short concert. The service was beautiful and an amazing cultural experience. And the concert was well attended, and we sounded AMAZING in the cathedral space. It was amazing to sing in there. Later that day we went to the BMW museum for lunch and then to Osterfest (the easter festival in Munich) where most of us went up in the Olympiaturm. The Olympiaturm was a tall tower very similar to the space needle in Seatle, but even taller! The view from the top was amazing. You could see for miles! The Osterfest took place on the grounds where the olympics took place in the 70's. It's really ana fantastic place. The stadium and the pool are completley covered with fiberglass structures that were absolutly beautiful. After leaving the Osterfest we went to the "Typically Munich" museum, which had tons to see. History from every side. There was fashion, art, musical instruments, puppets, statues, models, weapons, pictures, and so much more from all throughuut Munich's history. There was hardly enough time to see everything, but our busy schedule called and we had to run off to dinner at the Hofbräuhaus, one of Germanys most famous beer halls. Don't worry though parents, anyone in our group under 21 couldn't have anything but water to drink :). We had another typical bavarian style dinner while listening to live music and watching live dance shows. It was an amazing end to an amazing last day in Munich. Tomorrow we pick up again and move to Rothenburg. These last two days have been super busy, and even though we're all having a blast I'm sure I'm not just speaking for myself when I say that I'm looking forward to the downtime the drive will give us.
