Day 132:  After flying into Munich we went looking for our hostel and ran into Sarah and Trent who were buying their costumes, we made a plan to meet up that afternoon and try to find a beer garden for dinner.  We checked into our hostel and then went back out to meet up with the others, we went looking for a beer garden that the hostel guy told us about but we didn't find it and then it started raining and we got soaked so we caught the tram back into town and found a nice beer hall for dinner so it wasn't a complete disaster.          

Day 133:  Today we met up with Sarah, Trent, Geromie and Dylan (Trent's friend) and went to the Dakau Concentration Camp, I've been here before so I knew what to expect but it was still a very moving place when you read about all the stuff that happened here and all the personnel accounts of the people.  There are photos, newspaper articles, movies and heaps of other stuff, plus a walk though the camp quarters, church and memorial buildings as well as the crematorium, it's definitely worth a look if you are ever in the area.

After this we went back into town, me and Emma got our costumes and since we were only really going to wear it once we decided to all get dressed up and we went and found a beer garden and had dinner in full uniform which was fun and we also had our first stein in Munich.
