As mentioned yesterday, today is a public holiday in Germany - The Maibaum festival is a Bavarian tradition and is about the raising of the May tree which brings the locals out in their dirnlís and lederhosen. We visited the town of Putzbrunn near Munich during Maibaum festival which provided a full day of entertainment - what an experience for a kiwi and on the other hand Rolf was quite at home.
