3 bits of news

Security checks at the airport can sometimes be nerve-wracking, right? So the good news is that we will check in faster at Munich Airport because the Airport is buying $45 million worth of CT scanners. The use of 60 innovative CT scanners should make life easier for us because liquids and electronic devices will no longer have to be unpacked separately.

Somewhere in early 2023, the equipment will become available at the Airport. The announcement claims that the new lanes can screen up to 160 percent more passengers simultaneously than the older facilities.

The FOOD & LIFE exhibition in Hall A4 is Germany's largest gathering spot for eating, drinking, and having fun!

Over the course of five days, more than 300 manufacturers, master cheesemakers, coffee roasters, winegrowers, distillers, and brewers will display their handcrafted and regionally produced specialties.

At this culinary festival, you may taste, purchase, eat, and drink to your heart's desire!

It costs 15 euros, but I believe you get free food to taste (by some really good chefs).

Christina was here this week – She absolutely fell in love with it. According to her, it was extremely tasty, not spicy, and had a lot of herbs.

She especially loved Tahdig & Gheimeh, Zeytoun Parvardeh, and Kubideh.
