Because it was during Oktoberfest, the folks in Munich were dressed in Dirndls and Liederhausen, traditional German clothing. Karren and I were fascinated with all the different types and variations of the outfits, and I have to say I was surprised to see mostly young people dressed so traditionally. Karren and I can find humor in just about anything, and this time the Liederhausen provided fodder for much joking and speculation. For one thing...there's a big flap in the front, and they are all sizes and decorated differently. So.....we went on Flap Alert....and everytime a flap went by, one of us would call it! Now I have to tell you, most of the outfits were pretty cool looking, but every now and then we'd spy an odd one or two. Like this one:
|Tall man with VERY short Liederhausen~|
|Dirndl and Liederhausen for sale at the train station.|
You can see the rather ornate flap I mentioned!
|Leiderhausen with suit jacket.|
So...we're off on the train...the fun has only just begun. Stay tuned...
