Hacker-Pschorr tent at Oktoberfest in Munich

Kathryn and I were fortunate to spend an afternoon at Oktoberfest in Munich in 2007. Everyone has a favorite from among the major beer tents at Oktoberfest. Mine was the Hacker-Pschorr tent. The theme is charming and simple: Bavarian heaven.

We made it to Houston, finally. We have boarding passes through to Munich. Even that took two tries, though, since on the first try we got boarding passes for the flight we’d already missed. Way to go, Air France.

Long overdue post

There’s a certain irony to writing a blog. During those times when you have the most to write about, you have the least time to write it.

One night in Munich: Posh restaurants and English Gardens

I’m waiting in a bar near where my friend lives in Munich. She had to work late, so she’s not home yet. I thought I’d have a beer while waiting for her. Until just now, I had forgotten how good Bavarian beer is.
