The weekend of October 4-6 was Oktober Fest. A lot of people were really into it, but I was busy studying for midterms and it wasn’t really my thing. A lot of the girls dressed up in traditional Austrian dress and everyone, including people from the town of Gaming, came to the Kartause where there was a huge white tent set up. There was music playing and people eating pretzels, drinking beer and smoking pipes. I went over and hung out for a little bit until the smell of the smoke gave me a headache. When I got back to my room, my clothes and hair smelled like smoke even though I hadn’t smoked a pipe. It was an enjoyable evening and it was fun to watch other people having fun.
