If you've been following along, you know we're getting to the end of the vacation in Germany. So sad when it ended, because it was such a great time.
The last couple of days of our stay we spent in Munich. James was ill the first day, but Karren, Bram and I braved the rain and went to the OktoberFest. I want to add here that we were still on our search for Leiderhausen flaps, just so you know! Karren took it one step further and put together this wonderful montage of flaps and dirndls! Check out her blog - she really gets into some detail!

The park where OktoberFest was held was huge and very crowded. In fact, the buses, streets, train station and just about every square inch of land near the park were jammed with folks. Quite a sight, as you can see from the pic above.

The entrance to the park

Every brewery was colorfully represented and all the beer gardens were packed with waiting lines, so we didn't have the opportunity to share in the the beer and song!

Ha ha! This funny sign was outside one of the restrooms. I'm guessing most men paid top Euro for the privilege of using the toilet, as manly pride would probably kick in here! (Bet they made a lot of money!)

The lion roared, but it was so noisy we couldn't hear it! Great display though!

And so we bid you

Auf Wiedersehen!
