Before the rain and cold Winter approaches, here are some photos from November’s nice weather. The following images are of the Bavarian lakes, Tegernsee, Ammersee and Starnbergersee . Below, you will also find a few photos of children at night holding lanterns. These are from the Feast of St. Martin celebration here in Munich. It is a tradition for children to carry homemade paper lanterns through the streets before meeting at a bonfire. Here, the story of St. Martin is shared with the children and the other walkers about how he cut his coat in half and warmed a poor man on the street. The children are given a piece of bread to share with there company, just as he did with the poor man. It was beautiful seeing all the children’s colourful lanterns and hearing their carols. A new tradition I was very glad to be a part of. I hope this cold wet weather brings snow, I can not wait for Winter photos!
