Local colour

At no less than 111 locations in our Munich-Schwabing neighbourhood, tomorrow will see the annual proliferation of improvised 'flea market' installations of the pavements and in the internal courtyards of residential buildings. The weather is predicted to be fine, and the event will have 'block party' atmosphere. The Hofflohmärkte are not only an encouraging example of re-cycling (as people clear out their attics and find stuff which others might need even if they themselves do not) but also as a hint that a 'sharing society' is a realistic goal.
