Today we are German. Woke up early. Ari was "dead". Breakfast consisted of pretzels, fruhstuck (white sausage), and beer. Then off to Wasen!! Drinking age here is 16, but that didn't stop them from carding Ari and Annie for the beer tent... Seriously? Anyways, we got there early enough to get a table in the biggest tent. So awesome. One liter of beer has never tasted so good. Dancing, swaying, and standing on the tables are a must. Along with cheersing, chanting, banging your fists, and singing German songs & German versions if American songs. So many lederhosen and durndle everywhere you look.

After leaving the beer tent. Carni food was a must. Chocolate covered strawberries, corn on the cob, & candied almonds oh my! After navigating the trams like old pros we found ourselves in front of a yummy dinner spot. Met back up with our friends and headed home. Hung out for a while. Watched great YouTube videos about schnappi (see link below) for a while before (some of us) headed back out for round two.


1. "I wish my blahs sounded more German." -Annie, while singing at Wasen.
2. Salad beer is as gross looking as it tastes and sounds.
3. Oktoberfest in Stuttgart is called Wasen. In Munich it's called Wisen. (The W's are pronounced like V's.)
4. If you don't look someone in the eyes when you cheers they chant at you about years of a bad love life.
5. Schnappi video here: http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=bjdAM7OKdqA&desktop_uri=%252Fwatch%253Fv%253DbjdAM7OKdqA#
