Germany's St. George Platz

   I've been dreaming of Germany lately, and by Germany I mean the Germany pavilion in Epcot.  Really, more than anything I've been salivating over the idea of going to Biergarten and eating mounds of pretzel bread and cauliflower soup. (yay! we made our reservations yesterday!)
   The center of this pavilion is the St. George Platz.  Platz is essentially a town square...you know, if wikipedia is correct. (which it probably isn't.)  St. George is depicted in a wonderful statue and column in the center of the platz, while slaying a dragon.  Poor dragon! Well, you would probably kill the dragon if he was eating local children...I hope.
   The rest of the pavilion is flanked by several different architectural styles of Germany, including a wonderful castle backdrop, cottages, and an enormous and wonderful coo coo clock.






   Anyway. I didn't really plan on making this post today...but I'm incredibly homesick for Epcot right now, and I can't wait for October to get here.  Biergarten, here we come! :)
