After yesterday’s bird’s eye perspective of the beautiful Bavarian city of Passau, today’s mission is to get down to street level. AND, most important of all, to show my food-adoring audience what we gorged ourselves on. If you can’t wait even a second longer – the cake’s at the very end 🙂
But let’s start with a bit of glamour. Passau has it:
The streets may not be paved with gold, but the dogs certainly make up for it.
How about a touch of the exotic? Taken inside a spice shop.
Or maybe something (im)practical? This giant rucksack will accommodate three four-year-olds stacked on top of each other, plus a kitchen sink.
Now here’s an original shoe shop display 🙂
There’s some wicked witches about. My little brother there on the left doesn’t stand a chance…
I think this is my favourite photo, the pink church makes the perfect backdrop 🙂

Statue of writer and poet Emerenz Meier, born 1874 near Passau, died 1928 in Chicago. There was a touching poem on the plaque below, which made the point that, had she not been lumbered with female domestic responsibilities, she would probably have been as famous as Goethe or Schiller.

OK. You’ve made it to this point, so you’ve earned yourself a hearty meal. And CAKE!
Pork in a creamy mushroom sauce with Spätzle.
Some kind of vegetable bake with parmesan shavings. Very tasty, my mother said.
What we’ve all been waiting for: DESSERT!
