Having fun at Oktoberfest

Oktoberfest!!!

I took a holiday, not to Munich, but to the little town of Mount Angel, Oregon. It’s their 51st year of celebrating Oktoberfest. They are really into it: 3 beer halls with entertainment and lots of good food that benefits local schools, churches, etc. I didn’t eat all day so what does every artist do? I ate dessert first! Then, of course, was beer. Back to making art tomorrow.

On the way to Mount Angel…

The first order of business…. then on to see how much Oompah music I can listen to. Note to self: Don’t try to drink the fox’s beer. She will bite.

When in Munich, …

Drink beer of course. Here I am doing the tourist-thing at Hofbräuhaus München during a day trip to Munich. The Hofbräuhaus is a happening, touristy, international place. Thank you to the Munich local sitting down the table for tips on what beer to order, and to the Russian couple across from me who snapped my photo.
