    The biggest public festival in Garmany. Everybody drink deep and make a carousal there.
    There are jumbo tents, and colossal whirligigs.

    Dancing on wooden benches with the self-appointed official representation of Italia was, fortunately, an elective course of mine in college. Therefore, I was prepared for what ensued...

    You haven't lived until you've heard thousands of people try to sing along to John Denver's "Country Roads". I've never heard the words "West Virginia" interpreted so creatively.

    In some Bierhause you can see and hear funny groups of german musicians, who are able to play really everything. This group was in Weisses Bierhaus and they played also with cow´s bells.

    It is not as good as people describe because there is no air, people are too drunk, and waitresses aren't cute at all...

    At Oktoberfest don't miss the fairground rides - an adventure on its own you will not find anywhere else (some of them are even banned in the USA).

    There are various groups performing in public throughout the city center. The majority of what we saw were gypsies, but they attract quite a crowd. It was entertaining.

    Okay, I've heard there is a giant statue called 'Bavaria' on the fest grounds. I wouldn't know. This picture shows two people so drunk, they're propping each other up. I think I had a good time...
