Our assult on Munchen coincided with a gigantic lesbian street festival, highlighting the party vibe you'd expect from ze crazy Germans. We quickly assimilated, scoffing bratwurst and swilling Lowenbraus in the street surrounded by The Village People lookalikes and a host of latexed and feathered friends.

Dinner involved a rowdy bier hall complete with a totally German menu and a menapausal bier wench. Thank god for the friendly locals and their exceptional translation skills.

A day in Dachau Concentration Camp brought down the festive mood a bit whilst expanding our intelligence for the first time in months. It's been raining solidly for a week. What happenned to the European summer?

However, we discovered the world's most extensive collection of Belgian chocolates in concoctions of insane flavours that must been seen (and tasted) to be believed. We spent a good half an hour and much heated debate narrowing down our selection to 3 blocks:

* White Chocolate with Curry, Banana & Coconut;
* Dark Chocolate with Lavender;
* Milk Chocolate with Passionfruit & Jalapeno.

Hooking up with some friendly Canadian roommates, we took an excursion to the Oktoberfest site. (Why else do you come to Munich?) ... Let's just say, it looks quite a bit less festive in July!

Where in the world is Mrs. Hamsteak?
The Big Ham took a raincheck on the world trip. She didn't cope with the cabin pressure very well, lost loads of weight, (literally! Danielle accused us of breaking off her head, sucking the life outta her and sticking it back on again), and has returned home to Jack's toybox where she belongs......

Penny and Dave, I can't believe you only chose 3! I would have raided the shop. The next best thing is chocolate, ask any girl!!!! and it makes everything better, no matter whats going on around you. I think I eat too much of it. Sorry Penny...I am with Dave on the chocolate..I would have bought up big and eaten it too... Rosanne
