My trip around the world... India

Travel time: July 2004 - December 2007  |  by Nicole Schemionek

06.11.04 Mangalore, the octoberfest

The Oktoberfest was really great. It was about 300 rps (6 euro) for the whole evening. When we arrived there was almost nobody there. We were sitting down and guess what... I got the first really cold kingfisher... and I was glad and got into a party mood. It was really weird to see all the Bavarian things around there. It was looking like in a beertent and a band from Bavaria was playing music. There was one table with Bavarians and the rest were all Indian people. Chris and me joined the german table and we had great fun. The party started at 7 pm and at 9 pm the buffet opened. I had some beers already and was aiming to drink a lot to get everything out of the 300 rps... the buffet was delicious... they had home made german bread and sausages and sauerkraut and nice dessert. I was in heaven and didn't know what to eat first... J in the end I was so full I almost couldn't move anymore and I still had to drink my beer... I was dancing and having fun the whole night... really a great party... also the Indian people were going out of themselves and had a great party as well. It was finished at 12 pm but normally then a party should start really. Chris and me went to a dark pub afterwards with some Indian people. I was quite drunk and didn't want to drink more beer. I think I had about 9 or 10 kingfisher... finally we went to the hotel and I went straight to bed... The next morning I felt every single beer I had... which was not so nice. This is always after a party, he? but it was worth it. Chris decided to move on to Bangalore and left me with my hangover... but that was ok... I had a long sleep in and went for something to eat later that day. Also I used the iway and uploaded all my pic's... so I did at least something that day...
