Celebrate Oktoberfest- Win One of 40 Prizes from Lufthansa

I received an e-mail from Lufthansa yesterday regarding this fun little contest even thought it looks like it has been going on for a while. It actually ends tomorrow so enter immediately if you are interested!

To celebrate Oktoberfest, Lufthansa is giving away 40 interesting prizes.
To enter, you get to create your own Lebkuchenherzl
My first reaction to this was Lebkerwhat??? 

A lebkuchenherzl or herzl are “traditional gingerbread hearts sold at the Oktoberfest in Munich”. 

It took under 2 minutes to create/ design my herzl. You get to pick a border, colors, decorations, add text and a background.

Here is my Herzl:

My masterpiece!

This is the background I chose:

Ridiculous Street Signs #8- Dog Parking- Munich, Germany

While wandering around Munich I came across this sign and could not figure out what it meant. 
Usually a sign with a capital P lets you know that you are at a parking garage. The picture of the dog threw me off. Was this a garage to park your dog at?
I went to Google Translate for help and found out that Hunde-Parkplatz means Canine Parking.
Apparently in Germany there are not only parking spaces for your car,  they also provide parking for your dog!
