München beer tour

The beer tour had nine of us on it - a group of four ladies from the central US, and then a scattering from the rest of the English-speaking world; the guide himself being a Brit who'd stopped here a decade ago. Until I turned up the guide thought that he'd be leading an all-female tour, his workmates joked that he was disappointed by my arrival.

A fun evening ensued taking in the origins (and one-time monopoly) of weiß beer, München sentiments about Heineken and Budweiser, a microbrewery's cellar and beergarden, a bit of history, and finally the Hofbräuhaus complete with oompah band.

Today I've a slight amount of sunburn. The plan for tomorrow is to set off from München, put my suitcase in a locker at Füssen station, do the fantasy castle, then come back to Ulm. Still working out the contingency plan if there's no locker space; one posibility would be to ask to use the Füssen hostel's luggage store (although it's beds are full). In both directions I have to change at Buchloe station, but only have three minutes changeover - not long enough to use those lockers.

There has been an item on the One Show tonight saying that a standard suncream bottle should only do 6 whole body applications at 2 hourly intervals - otherwise forget the sun factor. When an expert slathered it on he left a total thick visible greasy layer and warned that tho' it can be rubbed in, rubbing off reduced effectiveness. Seems if you are going to wear sunscreen you should wear it with pride and show the world. Presenter pointed out now covered in a thick greasy layer.
Grounds for a purple, pink or dead white sunscreen?

Re: Sunburn
The sunscreen is almost dead white. But the sunburn was my own mistake - the previous day I forgot to do my arms when I did my face.
