das Oktoberfest

When I stumbled upon the image of this young and
resilient kellnerin, German for waitress, carrying 12
huge beer mugs I couldn't resist putting some lettering
on it to celebrate the 179th Oktoberfest, the world's
largest beer festival currently running in Munich.
”Zum Wohl!” everybody!


  1. Dearest Elisabetta,

    You labeled those beer mugs very well. And wow, that is quite a weight of beer, considering that those mugs weigh heavy on their own.
    So this is the 179th Oktoberfest, for Munich. I did not know that.
    Locally we will celebrate one on Saturday, October 6 at the Café Bar: Via Col Vento. Run by authentic Austrian and Italian friends of ours. That will be special here in Dublin, Georgia!
    Hugs to you,
