The Nuremburg fest was much like an American carnival except the food you can buy is amazing and maybe a little more extravagant as well as the rides are bigger and they last for a longer duration. Katherine is not a huge fan of rides so we started out with the swings; it was a gentle ride, albeit chilly, and that got Katherine interested in trying another ride.
The Go-Karts were a lot of fun even though the track was short. They let us ride for quite a long time and I had the faster Go-Kart so it was very enjoyable. I did have the fastest but Tim, his friend Jolly and Katherine were good at blocking me passing!
There were two large beer tents where you could drink in German style with live music as a background. One tent had traditional music and the other was rock music. There were also various other little stands to get beer and liquor. Tim peer pressured us into some shots of Jagermeister and we had many beers. It was also in one of these tents that Katherine learned that a shot in Germany is about 1/3 the size of a shot here.
So to end the fun Tim decided to walk over to the Go-Karts one last time, randomly sat down on the ground on the way there and we walked over to see what was up. Somehow he rolled his ankle and was in excruciating pain. We managed to carry him, walking under his shoulders (as well as a mini keg of beer from Bamberg earlier in the day and 4 glass mugs we were bringing back from the fest) to the bus and then to the train and then into Stephanie's car and back home. It was a really fun last day in Germany but unfortunately it put Tim in a boot!
