I'm not sure how two days already passed in Munich, but so it has. Actually its not so hard to understand considering the opening weekend of Oktoberfest is such a big event with so many people and things going on, and Friday was really a long work day spent mostly in the apartment (not a complaint, just explanation); it just feels like its all already gone so fast. I'm glad I have an even longer stay in Munich planned than normal in hopes of enjoying a more relaxed pace between the biggest Oktoberfest event tomorrow, Braurosl Sunday and the smaller one the Monday of the following week in Fischer-Vroni - my first time to stay for that one. The city is in full swing with so many visitors here and the locals all in Oktoberfest-mode as well. Lederhosen and Drindl started appearing on the streets as early as Thursday, and even from my apartment I could hear the bands and canons opening the fest officially today. Tomorrow begins early and ends late, so don't expect to hear from me before Monday! Prost!
