Breakfast at this hostel is amazing. Kaiser rolls, meat, cheese, cereal, yogurt, fruit, juices. Great stuff. Truly German way to start our days.

We were to meet with my friends Patrick and Brian. Due to major communication problems we did not. Sad.

So we went on a free tour instead. It was extremely informational and our tour guide Ricky was very passionate about Munich so that was great. We saw just about every single inch of Munich, from the Glockenspiel to Hofbrauhaus to seeing a spot where Hitler almost got killed right before the war. That could have changed history.

At night we went to Hofbrauhaus. The atmosphere of Hofbrauhaus is unbelievable. People of all ages are just having a jolly old time. Waiters in liederhosen and waitresses in their apparel are walking around passing out beers and brats. The men carry about 15 one liter mugs at a time!! Now that should be an Olympic sport.

So at first we were just sitting by ourselves with our one liter mugs. By beer 2 we were really into this whole atmosphere. We started cheersing (Prost) to random tables around us and at one point had the whole section screaming PROST! Jeff then got me a pretzel and a gingerbread cookie that says, "Ich Liebe Dich."

So some guys two tables away really got in on this whole Prost deal with us. So we would lift our mugs and then they would lift theirs and we would cheers each other back and forth. After a bit they called us over to sit with them. They were four Finnish guys: Jan, Johann, Patrick, and Martin. We all started talking and just having a great time! They ended up buying us one liter each of beer. haha those were two more beers we did not need but yet drank them. The one guy Patrick was so drunk he finished every sentence with "blah blah blah." It was like something out of a cartoon.

So in Swedish, cheers is Slowa and in Finnish it is Kippiss.

We all walked home together, singing and laughing. It was great.
