For those traveling to Munich (where I lived some time ago), their famous Oktoberfest begins Sept. 20 and ends Oct. 5.

The beer tents are huge and are generally two stories tall.

Beer is served in 1 liter glasses called "ein mass." As the fest goes on, the amount of beer in those glasses reduces ounce by ounce. A local paper publishes the measured volume for the many tents each morning from the previous night.

The Bavarian food served in the tents is fantastic.

There is nothing like it.


If this be a dream do not wake me up; if not a dream, wish me no sleep
