God you can understand why the German economy is so good , especially when you see some of the price list in the Mail. I can just see them there in Berlin in August thinking lets take those Brummies for a ride

Edmund what I haven't mentioned is whether you have a pint or a stein(1.3/4pts) you have to pay 3.00 deposit on the glass . Seems
very peculiar to me , normally if you want to take beer outside they serve you in plastic containers (glasses) . I've heard of Moneymaker tomatoes never heard it linked to glasses though. One thing to say on this " You can fool some of the people etc". To finish off
Edmund it's got nothing at all to do with Brexit, it's people surmising what they think is going to happen.

Scipio,only drink2-3 small beers when we used to go by coach to the markets(in case I wanted to go to the toilet on the coach ).Its true some places do charge for the glasses,but they are of a nice design and you get to keep them.Ive got some lovely mugs (1euro) from the Gluevine drinks.Now I drive to the towns I park up outside the hotels and can enjoy the nights and the sights,Great

Edmund you've obviously got calmer drinkers down there , it seems where I used to live drinkers there were sparked by the merest thing hence the plastic glasses

i have been to the german market about 3 times and i do like the atmosphere it creates ie the sights..sounds and smells but as already said it is the same thing every year...not much change and very expensive and of course a little haven for pickpockets...often thought to myself why cant we have a traditional english market for a change....
