Germany Munich Rain Oktoberfest

3 June 2016

Strawberry Salad

Exploring the Oktoberfest fields in June

The rain finally came to Munich in the form of an awesome thunderstorm.
There are floods everywhere but until tonight it has barely rained at all here. It was all over in an hour or so, and right now after I have returned home early at 8:30pm due to rain...the sun is shining.
Anyway, whilst I was standing under a building watching the rain in the city square, a funny thing happened. There were lots of little stalls with canvas roofs set up in the square, these were filling up with water. A store owner used a broom stick to push up the middle of his canvas roof before it collapsed under the weight of water.
This sent an enormous torrent of water off the back of the roof, onto the head of a sheltering midget. You might like to call them little people, but whatever hes called, he was now as wet as someone who had been completely submerged in a pool, and furious!
Its hardly the store owners fault, he paid for the roof, and its not like you could see the little guy, he was lower than the top of the counter.

I tried to take a photo of lightning but failed, there was a bolt every few seconds, thats why I am standing in the middle of a field with a camera above my head.

Then I decided on salad for dinner. The special was Chicken vonzliegenstrauberschnell or something, so I got that.
I did not expect it to have chicken, melon, and strawberries, in a vinegar dressing.
It didnt matter, I read the news on my phone whilst eating it and therefore didnt notice what I was eating.
