New Year's On the Rhein
In addition to the usual clubbing options, lots of Dorfers head to the banks of the Rhein to drink Champagne (or sparkling wine, if you're a stickler) and shoot off fireworks. I'm not sure there's even an official display, just LOTS of people with their own pyrotechnics. This goes on for at least 20 minutes -- that's when i got tired of inhaling gunpowder residue & the increasingly close firecracker pops. It's definitely worth checking out. Much cooler than the usual techno clubs...
Unfortunately, I lost my mini tripod in Munich (damn beer halls!), so I was forced to just rest the camera on a railing, since I'm not quite able to hold it steady for a 2 second exposure.
And one of my New Year's resolutions is to post better. The 3 wk absence of posts can be blamed on a family visit.
