Today is, if you are a god-fearing folk, a Happy Cadaver Day, literal translation in German. This means it’s a holiday and everything is closed except churches and beer gardens, both of which are open for business and will gladly take your money. Since we don’t drink beer, but have been to church before, we elected to go and check out what the fuss was all about at the beer gardens. This Bierfest is set up in the moat of the old castle. Lots of beer, lots of food, a good dose of mud will all the rain we have been having but high spirits and good times for all.
