Oktoberfest, Argentinian Style!

Posted by on October 13, 2012

Beer and Strudel, yes, what a combination you are asking yourself, but as we found out they go quite well together !

There may have been more beer than apple strudle, but I think the strudle was nicer.

The Angie, Phil, Sarah and Merv gang

After various e mails and way points, we finally met up with Phil and Angie at a wild camp down by the river just outside of Villa General Belgrano and we spent 3 lovely days with them. We had found Phil from his web site, Phil and Angie are very experienced travellers, and have the best set of documented GPS waypoints we have ever seen. As they have been in the southern parts of Argentina, we got loads of tips on places that are worth visiting, and other general travel tips.

Sarah and Phil seemed to hit it off a bit too well. Must be her lovely dress.

However, we were very lucky on our timing here as the whole town had exploded into life as the Oktoberfest beer festival had just started and continued until Monday, happy days we said, would be a shame not to sample some German Beer, so our Saturday night entertainment was decided for us. The town’s main street was lined with beer cellars, authentic German food, chocolate shops, Lutheran chapels and was buzzing with people all carrying pitchers of beer, a fantastic atmosphere and as you can image as the evening wore on, the fun and frollicks got even better.

I thought this looked quite well on her.

Bit of a girls weekend out I think

Looking cool in Shades

Not everyone was acting happy

There was some kind of foam fight going on, looked like fun

The Argentines know how to party

Great craic for a street party

I have no idea what part of German beer festivals this relates to

If you dont have a mate, bring one with you. Bare chested and in a kilt.

Before you ask , there was an Irish Bar and many Irish shirts and hats. We spoke to this particular guy and asked him why the Irish hat, and he told us his friend brought it back to him from Dublin. Sure it wouldn’t be the same without the Irish!

Local guy in an Irish hat. Perfectly normal he assured us.
