Oktoberfest in the Marche

oktoberfest1 While chatting to Thomas and Erica (our nearest German neighbours)on Saturday, their friend Klaus arrived from Munich. He has a house near Corinaldo and had just arrived for a week’s holiday. He had brought with him a keg of “Munich beer” and so invited us to his house for an Oktoberfest. Unknown to me the Oktoberfest takes place in mid-September. So we were only a week early.Sunday evening we arrived at his house where Klaus gave us a warm welcome. The barbecue was aleady hot and so after a quick concession to Italy – a glass of prosecco, we had a first course of German sausages, saurkraut, Erica’s delicious potato salad followed by a second course of barbecued pork, salad and more beer. To repeat a cliche – a good time was had by all.
