Then, we visited Kasuga Taisha(Shrine).

Kasuga Taisha is the biggest shrine in Nara city.
The shrine was founded about 1200 years ago at the time when the capital was moved to Nara.

I was taken the first photo in front of the entrance gate, Nan-mon.
The gate was built in Heian era(794-1185)

At the shrine, I found many lanterns.
The shrine has about 3000 lanterns.

Today my host said that I should have a mulled wine to taste for my welcome. The usual mulled wine is made with red wine and spices. For this occasion I got a special one - made with elderberry wine! Mmmmh, delicious  :p

When we came close to the Stachus we saw a strange creature flying --- we had a nice chat and talked about toyvoyaging. But no way this creature will become a toyvoyager, the postage would be enormous  :(

München, Germany - 10th February 2008

By: Pandamao

Today Barthélémy wanted to visit the "Alter Südfriedhof" (Old South Cemetery) so I just came along.

This is what I read about the cemetery:

It is a little known fact that Munich's oldest green area is 450 years old, that it's in the heart of town and that it's a cemetery - the Alter Südfriedhof. The cemetery is something of a conservation area and bears unique testimony to the city's cultural history. Its romantically overgrown graves, tombs and mausoleums pay homage to distinguished Munich figures - artists, architects, master builders and scientists.

In the plague year 1523 graveyards within the city walls were so overfilled that a new cemetery - the "Äußerer Freithof" - was opened outside the city gate at the Sendlinger Tor. The cemetery wall and all the buildings were later destroyed as a preventative military measure in the Thirty Years War. Well into the 18th century the cemetery was looked on as a poor man's burial ground. In 1844, a new section designed by Gärtner was added and it continued to be Munich's central burial ground up to 1868.

The cemetery suffered severe bomb damage in 1944-45. Today, only a quarter of tue graves are identifiable and many are in urgent need of renovation. Work is underway.

Even if the cemetery is not in use anymore many people were walking there. It is like a park nowadays. We saw little spring flowers blossom and sat on a bench in the sun.

Some of the graves are inside the back wall of the houses. And windows pop up between the statues on the graves.
