Or Munich as it’s commonly known in English. We had a beautiful train journey from Verona yesterday through the alpine valleys through to Munich where we’re staying with one of my friends called Dave. He lives in a shared house in Munich’s equivalent of Park Lane. We just got up at 7:30am to go into the Octoberfest tent to start drinking. Apparently the tables are all full at 10:00, which makes this craziness necessary. Dave and his girlfriend Ellie are dressed up in the traditional Bavarian outfits. I’ll let you know how the event goes later.
