Halle (a little Christmas Market)

Son of Halle - Handel..... 'Michael Jackson' of  the 1700  :-)
After Leipzig, we made a short drive to Halle.  The Christmas Market is small and not different from Leipzig. Lots of grill - sausages and game.

How did he do this ?

While walking through the Viktualien market in Munich, I saw this (DING).  There was nothing else around him.  Looked like he was floating.   What happens when he let go the stick ?

Have a closer look.  Can someone please explain leh.

Christmas Market 2011 - Munich

Here is another CHRISTMAS MARKET to add to collection. It's Munich or München in German. Munich city alone draw tourists like bees to honey, all year round - to Oktoberfest for one. In the city centre, never to be missed is the Church/Marienplatz. A stone throw away is the Viktualien Market which is another must see. There is also a display of the 'button in ear' (remember Teddy Bear) Steiff animals.   It was almost impossible to shoot any photos due to the crowd - please excuse the lousy shots.

YUMMY - Prawns and Truffel

I have finally made up my mind so off we went to Munich to finalize the purchase. While the papers were being processed, I went into the city for a round of Christmas Market tour in the city centre. Photos will be posted soon. After an hour of pushing crowds, decided to have a good lunch. And here is our lunch. Huge butter prawns on salad of sour cream red beets - with oven fresh baguette.
Linguine with Truffel cream sauce
Happy decision, happy tummy !
