Hey, remember when I used to get drunk and have fun all the time? Yeah, so do I. Those were the days! My salad years. Now the only time I seem to fit in a drink is when I need an alternative to weeping in front of a blank computer screen.
So, the weather has been shit the past couple days in PR, and it has been AWESOME. It's cloudy and there is a slight breeze in the air, and if you close you eyes and turn on the fan you can imagine it's Fall somewhere!!! Like Wisconsin! Or Germany.
Ok. Germany: Every year around this time,I start to get a little nostalgic for Europe -- Germany specifically. Why? Because Fall in Germany is the shit, and so is...CHRISTMAS. OMG. Every year I waste at least a week sitting online looking up pictures of Christmas Markets, or Weihnachtsmarkt, and various gluhwein recipes. Ironically, of all the pictures I have from my year studying abroad and other trips to Europe I have NEVER TAKEN A PICTURE AT A CHRISTMAS MARKET! It makes me sad every year. And every year I start this Great Internet Search which includes all of the above, plus a last minute STA and Orbitz search for plane tickets.
I did not buy a plane ticket to Germany. BUT, I did go to Oktoberfest in PR! I have been saving up for a month so I could go to this event with a nice cushion of spendable money to squander, and ooo did I spend it all...The Highway and I enjoyed various stouts and Oktoberfest micro brews and had some spatzel and brats. I love outside events in the evening! They are so fun. It was more crowded this year than it was last, but not overly crowded and it seemed to be a good mix of people from the West coast... i saw people from Cabo Red, Maya, Rincon...It was worth the travel I believe :) Good times were had, and it was the first thing i have looked forward to in a longggggggggg time. And now it's back to Medalla.
