If you didn’t came here by chance, you know about Namazu. Nearly the same myth (giant catfish punishes sinners with earthquakes) exist here in Bavaria (please use Google translate). Tell me, what are the odds for that? Is there a secret connection between Japan and Bavaria? Now it’s getting really strange, the people from the Walchensee went every year on a pilgrimage to calm down the Bavarian Namazu. Well, the Bavarian word for going on a pilgrimage is „Wallen“, for pilgrimage itself it’s „Wallfahrt“, pilgrims are called „Waller“. But „Waller“ is the Bavarian word for giant catfish, too. And „Wallen“ means making heavy waves, too. And last but not least, „Wallung“ means to throw a temper tantrum in German. That’s enough to drive me up the wall!
