My spur of the moment decision to head to German Village couldn't have been more perfect.
Oktoberfest (독일마을 옥토버페스) was just the taste of home that I needed.
It brought back many memories for me,
and it made me miss my family a great deal.
There was something special about seeing the culture from which my family came
mixed with the culture which I have recently adopted.
A weird kind of connecting the dots.
|We have arrived at 독일마을 옥토버페스.
|So many things I love all in one place. It feels like family.
|Can't wipe the smile off my face.
|New friends make it all the more fun.
|The German/Korean Music was awesome.
|Everyone was in the spirit.
|Even taking it to the stage.
|The awesomeness was almost more then I could handle.
|Steins were raised and songs were sung.
|I even pretended to drink beer :p
|No festival is complete without a clown on stilts.
|Of course we didn't just celebrate Germans, we celebrated everyone with dance styles from all over.
|With beers, comes excellent posing.
|Even the pets came along for the ride.
|Last year they sold over 30,000 German sausages.
|Beer was shipped from Germany just for the occasion.
|The only real complaint, is that they could have used more of these.
