can you imagine that Yours Truly was for the first time in her life (and she is no greenhorn anymore :-) on the Oktoberfest in Munich?
I went in the early afternoon - many people already there, but not so many drunks.
Beautiful traditional costumes - Dirndl for the women, Lederhosen for the men (and Wow, they show off) - and of course floods of beer.
The sun shone on a bright Bavarian blue sky - and for a moment I hesitated if I should repeat one of the joys of my childhood and youth: going around in a carrousel. The are even bigger than in the olden days - and signs generously offered "Half the price for people over 60!" What a chance!
Fasten your seatbelt - you'll need it!
And up you go - you'll have a beautiful view over Munich!
Up, up !!!
Even that might be enjoyable - what kept me back was that they fall with enormous speed back to the ground (you have to trust the labourers who build up the plant).
And you have to trust your heart...
Well, after some consideration I preferred these hearts:
"O'zapft is!" - that is the traditional shout for the Oktoberfest (= die Wies'n) and means: "The beer cask is tapped!"
PS: And after two "Maß" = 2 Liter beer (and I only have to smell at the crown cap to become VERY bold) - I might change my mind and go up ... 2024 maybe... if Tom or Tasker join in, that is...
