It was hovering around freezing, and kinda wet, and that made me nervous about a long bike ride and the potential for a wipe-out, so I opted for a walk instead.
I don’t know how long it’s been there, but there’s a Bucherzelle at the Andreasstadel in Stadtamhof now. Looks like they’ve had trouble with people using it improperly. I hope that behavior doesn’t doom it.
After crossing onto the islands, I saw the biggest police boat I’ve ever seen on the Danube. I wonder if they were out patrolling for face mask violators, just like all the squad cars and paddy wagons we’ve seen recently.
On the fourth Sunday of advent, this place is supposed to be jam-packed with eaters, drinkers, and shoppers. I have a feeling “jam-packed” was always going to be a no-go this year, and maybe for more than a few years to come. But I also have a feeling that more diligence and national cohesion of policy would have allowed Christmas markets to have opened with moderate restrictions in place and prevented this nearly complete Weihnachtsmarktverbot. I kinda wish there were none at all – just skipping it this year – instead of these sad little displays. Of course, my financial survival is not linked to a Christmas market happening or not.
