Oktoberfest 2007-Tour 3 (MB-070928)
After dropping off the last tour at Nürnberg airport, 5 minutes later the South Africans and New Zealanders arrive, yep, they mistook me for a 'kraut with lederhosen on'!
We load up then it was back to the 'cannonball run' from Nürnberg to München, a 2-hour drive in conditions resembling a waterfall on speed.
Anyway, we check in and then it's off to the Wies'n in some pretty yucky weather, the tent and a few beers later.....

The Big Weekend, the busiest and the half way point for the fest! 3 million litres drank so far (just Bier-Mania!).
I wouldn't want to be a chicken within a 100km radius of here.
Day 1. Friday 28 September, 1400 hours (2pm), Schottenhamel Festzelt, Mass Kruges and Hend'l, yum yum. And of course 'Grant's girls'.
Day 2. München walkabout. A wet at Augustiner Bierhalle, another at the Englisher Garten. The lads hit the fest again, the rest of us look for 'Dirndl's' and drink some more beer at Schneider, along with copious amounts of food!
