So I decided it's probably good to to use some of the VISA points I got from buying those nice collections of glasses and schedule some time off. (I got into a second accident in September Labour day just before my trip. I only realized in 2018 now that I should have seek help in vision therapy after my first accident. It might have prevented my second accident, since I had an airbag concussion that hit me hard at the front of my head.)
All was great!!!! My German friend in Zurich couldn't make it to meet at Munich, but he recommended his friend's place for me to crash. My other options was to sleep in Hostels, since I am actually pretty easy going on rooming. I ended up making friends with the girlfriend of my German friend' schoolmate. It's the best thing that ever happened to me in Munich, meeting local people! She was warm and took me around town. The streets were festive before we even go into the fairgrounds. We bumped into my other friend from Hong Kong exchange, during his Euro trip from Australia! What are the chances! We ended going to a smaller part of the tent in Okertoberfest, and having a blast!
I just want to say this again, I was at the Chinese Tower where they were playing classical symphony music, drinking German beer, in the English Garden...
I don't discriminate.
I didn't feel very proud of my alibaba purchased Wiesn-Outfit for the occasion at the time, but here it is for a good laugh.
English Garden was a great place the locals hang out and exercise. You might run into the surfing crowd where the waves are strong in the river too.
I went off to see the Oktoberfest parade, and visit the BMW museum the day after. It was fun to see very trained staff dressed in Wiesn-Outfit showcasing the classical BMW cars from 1970s.
Keep an eye out for the ones on Amsterdam and London!
