Throwback Tuesday Post (TBTP) from 2012: I challenged myself to create a more-or-less authentically traditional American Thanksgiving dinner in my little corner of Bavaria in Germany.

Throwback Tuesday Post (TBTP) from 2014: Everyone knows Oktoberfest: the biggest beer party in the world. But do you know that the opening procession is for the workers?

The headquarters of the Munich Reinsurance Company in Germany resides in this imposing piece of architecture built just for their own purposes. Designed by architects Oswald Eduard Bieber and Wilhelm Hollweck; built in 1912/13, it's located across the street from the Munich Riding School on the edge of the English Garden.
