The object of my disappointment

The complete waste of time. Though I discovered many interesting places while getting there. I must admire the stoicism of the Japanese tourists who were photographing this thing from every possible angle!

So, yeah, like basically every other tourist trap on the planet the thing is way overrated. But seriously, what did you expect? The statue of a pissing hulk the size of the Coloss of Rhodos? ;-)

AFAICS the whole point is the contrast between the cuteness of that tiny statue of a little cherub doing one of the more profane deeds one can imagine.

Well, I atleast expected it to be the size of a real child. This was so tiny and inconsequential, I would have missed it had it not been for the hordes of Japanese pointing their cameras at it leading me to look in the direction of the camera lenses.

I've not started on Munich yet! :-)
