BTW, a few years ago in Germany there was a huge scandal because it was discovered they often used rotten meat for the Döner Kebab.

"is there a name for this spice(s)."

I don't know. Normally we order the Kebab " mit Scharf" ("One kebab with spicy."). Grammatically not correct, but after years of beeing asked "Do you want your kebab with spicy?" the Germans adopted the wrong speech...


Just ask:
Wo kann ich das kaufen? (Where can I buy this?)
Kann ich etwas von dem Gewuerz kaufen? (Can I buy some of the spice from you?)

Cleatus, how did your car rental work out for you?

Are you anywhere near Munich yet? When I was last in Munich in the Summer of 2009, I enjoyed spending an afternoon with my uncle at the outdoor beer garden of Oberschleißheim...

back fron europe- car rental went fine- no issues other than its expensive to rent- was about 400 bux for a 3 series BMW- you can get cheaper, but we were all over the place...wanted comfort (and speed)...diesel/gas is expensive- I figure around 80 bux to fill it up each time.
Autobahn is fun...but be carefull...they do have speed limits all over the place- and TONS of construction. There is always a truck, and some slow ass driver passing it- slowing you down.

i did not have a lot a of access to interwebs over there- seems ya gott pay 17 euro to get it at any hotel...


We did get to europe- loved it. if i could change our trip, i would dump luxembourg and add a day or two to munich. We got to the chinees biergarden in english garden to drink- was awesome.

Its the best deal out there at the moment with only the first month costing you more than €25 because you have to buy the surf stick.

Thanks for the info, Tony. I will have to get one of those for my next trip to Germany this Fall/Winter...

I maintain a German bank account, so hopefully that will suffice.
