How better to celebrate the liberation from the Germans …

… than with a pretzel @ Paulaner ?

See, every 25th of April, the Italians celebrate that the Nazis finally left Italy back in 1945.

What struck us as odd then was that a huge street market for this weekend consisted to 60% of stands with German writing on it (even the Thai eatery had come all the way from Berlin) … there were lots of places selling German beer, Bavarian meat specialties, Austrian pastries and of course, one of Julius’ favorite: The pretzel

Silent re-occupation through food?

Glad we were there early-ish, the masses that pushed along between the stands got really out of control and semi-aggressive towards the time we left.
