She made it to Munich, and even to the "tail" end of Oktoberfest!
Here's my sister (in the dirndl) and my daughter -- you can see the family resemblance. How I wish I could be there too...
This week I'm cooking German food in their honor (see Borealkitchen, my other blog).
As we were sitting around a good German meal last night, the kids were comparing notes on their visit last summer to Munich and their Tante Elke, my younger sister.
Youngest: "She's like a darker-haired version of mom, and really funny."
Me: "How's that?"
Wolfman: "She's a trickster-version of you, mom! I love how she made fun of you. Like teasing your American pronunciation of 'genau'."
Eldest is blogging about her experiences in Germany on her blog Kitchensister.
