After only 2 days in Munich for Oktoberfest it is obvious how much the Germans love their beer and love their partying!  Lederhosen was the standard attire for the event, and huge liters of beer was obviously the drink of choice.  We managed to get a spot in a beer tent for lunch and experienced the true spirit of oktoberfest!  People were singing loudly in German, dancing on tables, and at random occasions would cheer and clang huge beer steins with their friends.

When this band came out to play in the tent they made their entrance by all chugging a liter of beer together - completely takes shot-gunning a beer to a new level!  They had fair rides that completely trump anything in the US - Scott and I rode on these swings that took us so high that we could practically see all of Munich.  Pretty sure half of the rides they had there would be too unsafe to be legal in the US...there were drunk people stumbling and falling asleep next to the roads as they attempted to walk home.  The best was witnessing a drunk man attempt to eat his bratwurst, while crossing a street, and then stepping over another passed out drunk man who didn't even wake up as it started to pour rain ontop of him.  Gotta love the Germans!  It was absolutely an experience to remember!!
