Then I must be in Munich. Actually I got here Friday, but my body is still quizzing me on the day. I am composing via Blackberry in my hotel room.

Soon enough I can get breakfast and a head start on sightseeing before weather and jet lag conspire to keep me inside.

Weird dreams visited me last night during my various stretches of sleep. People whom I knew only in passing from high school showed up. Perhaps my subconscious had them on a waiting list to appear in one of my dreams.

I have learned what's on much of German TV in the middle of the night. Aside from a vast array of porn channels, there was Larry King. Larry was my jet lag friend in Germany the last time I was here. In 1994, he was interviewing Bill Cosby. Today, it was Suzanne Somers, but Mitt Romney will be the guest Monday. Poor Mitt.

I know people have remedies to get over jet lag, but I find the best solution is sleeping when you're tired. It has a certain simplicity to it. And I think that after today, the worst will be over. But now, I must go venture out in to the land of wurst.

how is the weather out there Bob? It's early Jan. So I'm thinking it's pretty cold out there.

It's in the 30-40 range. It isn't that bad. There may be a little rain today, but I should be inside most of the time.

Don't forget to have a Hefeweizen for all of us stuck here in the states, or two or three.

Stupid Ugly American that I was, when I was in Munich I desperately wanted a hamburger and went into a Wendy's. Somehow I ended up with a bowl of chili instead (which, wet and rainy as that afternoon was, hit the spot).

I am going to go out on a limb and guess Bob is not watching Wazzu vs UCLA.

From everything I've ever read, I think Bob says no to beer.
