Default Germans invent the perfect electronics store

Wife was very impressed with the electronics mega-store in Munich -- who else would have thought to put a donut (Krapfen) stand on one side of the entrance, and a schnitzel stand on the opposite.

Ikea. Those darn cinnamon rolls get me every time! It's hard to ignore,when the whole store smells of them.

I just have trouble with the idea of eating anything called Krapfen.

Do you have Fry's in NJ? You can buy disk drives, washing machines, MOSFETs, and EPROMs, then stand in line at the checkout next to all the junk food and Penthouse magazines an engineer could ever want.

It put Best Buy to complete shame. I think it was on the Neuhausestrasse -- someone from Munich help me out. BTW, Munich is really wonderful.

Munich: It should have been beer, Wesswurst and Schpaetzle.

I hope you had the time to visit the German National Museum (amongst all the other great stuff)! I cant wait to get back!

In this case, you should also stay away from "Karpfen". Tastes the way it sounds.
