It's that time of year again. The Au neighborhood of Munich puts on its traditional festival, this one in late summer being the Jakobidult. What makes it special this time around is this is the 700th year.

I'm not entirely certain what is the decisive factor in figuring out what can be sold there, because as always there is a large array of the most bizarre things. Case in point - tiny bits to build your own doll.

We also saw a soap box race before heading up to the nearby Nockherberg biergarten. There were so many interesting cars - including one that was a motorized beer case to with enough power to drag cars back up to the top of the hill.

It really was the perfect Munich Sunday.

A great thing about a city, there's always something to do. Something cool about a German city, is that some things are really old traditions. Looks like a unique and great way to spend an afternoon!
