Oktoberfest

Oktoberfest

pure madness, visiting my first Bavarian Oktoberfest - in Windhoek, Namibia!

Location: 

Sean McBride, Windhoek, Namibia

Duration: 

Saturday, October 29, 2016

Personal highlights

  1. Oktoberfest: traditional festivity imported from Munich, Bavaria
  2. Namibia: very weird clash of two cultures due to German colonies
  3. People: heavy built German and Dutch immigrants drinking lots of beer
  4. Competitions: beer lifting (female record: 17 glasses!) and wood sewing
  5. Couchsurfing: finding new friends online to have a fun afternoon / evening
