Breakfast at the hotel - classic spread of cold cuts and bread. Headed to Hotel Bayers to meet with David/Cecilia/Sandy/Georgina. We went to the Oktoberfest festival area and waited in line to get a table at one of the well known beer halls. Unfortunately we were too late and had to wander off to look for another hall which could accommodate the 7 of us. We managed to get a table outdoors in one of the halls and to kill time invented a variation of poker whereby we used slaps as betting chips. All in was equal to 5 slaps. by the end of it I was brazenly calling all in on most hands. Fear often forced the others to fold. The only person I was scared of was Dave. He had figured out that the wrist was the most sensitive and proceeded to pelt me there when i lost. So much fun. After drinking 2 big 1L mugs we left and went outside to check out the rides and spectacle that was Oktoberfest. So much fun. We went on rides and pitted our strength in a giant version of wack-a-mole - but with only one mole. Being egotistical I swung big and totally missed the mark 3 times. We finished the day by heading back to the hotel, having a quick nap followed by heading to the famous hofbrauhaus for dinner. What a day!!
