Translation... it's tapped!
The official start of Oktoberfest was today, it will continue until October 7th. I LOVE Oktoberfest, and I have a difficult time being anywhere else on this opening weekend except in Munich. I'm not in Munich... as you will soon learn.
I went to the official Oktoberfest website to see the latest live shots from the Wies'n, and the tears started. Oh geez. So I went downstairs, so that my sweet husband wouldn't see me crying. He always feels responsible when I cry homesick for Munich.
Actually he should feel responsible. If I hadn't met him, fell in love, and moved to the city he called home for 20 years, I wouldn't be missing it today, and in this state of despair, yes despair!
Missing friends, the energy, my goddaughter (who was born on opening day in 1994), the beer (Augustiner Edelstoff), the grilled chicken (yes, chicken), the obazda, the pretzels, the schnapps, the beer. So what's a girl to do when she's thousands of miles away. Well here's what this girl did in pictures. It helped.
