Yet you live on the North Side in YOUR neigborhood? Is it the proximity to Germantown? I haven't been to Munchen in years; loved sitting in the square to listen to and watch the Glockenspiel... then over to the Hofbrauhaus!

It's Frankfurt, where I go. I love the street side cafe's around the Bonhoff. The relatives live out near Obersousel, though. Never get down to Munich though, need to do that I guess.

Didn't Greater Pitt once have a direct flight to Frankfurt? Never been to Frankfurt myself, though.
