Day 9 in Tübingen- Outlet City Metzingen

What a beautiful weather.

The city rose out of nowhere, just like how Las Vegas rose in the desolated Nevada desert. The dire hunger of consumerism spurred the growth of this small town.  It took her only a blink of an eye to transform from a rustic village into a giant shopping center, consisting of some of the most luxurious brands in the world-Prada, Hugo Boss, Burberry, etc.

However, most shoes in Nike and Adidas are extremely ugly and expensive. So did Puma. I barely see anyone on the streets wear that kind of shoes. 

Finally, I bought a pair of Timberland. 44.9 euros. Average price of a pair of running shoes here is about 60 euro. Timberland outlet here sells a huge variety of shoes. All of them are cost-efficient, comparing with other outdoors brands. 

My first pair Timberland ! Cheers ! 

In the afternoon, we went to one of the biggest Asian store around university, which is located in Reulingen. Unfortunately, the tastes of vinegar, soybean sauce are so different from those in Taiwan.
