It is Oktoberfest time!

On last Sunday, Sept 29th, we embraced the opportunity to gather with our IE alumni and professors at the fascinatingly vivid Munich Oktoberfest to share our joy and life stories and also to celebrate the 180th Birthday of this world’s biggest beer festival. This year our 70 IE alumni, not only those from Europe, coming from all around the world, like Kuwait, Iran and South America, to attend the occasion.

Dressing up with Dirndls and Lederhosen, everyone got totally involved in the lively atmosphere as shouts of ‘Prost’ could be heard from every single corner. With live Bavarian band music playing in the background, our alumni met up with their old study-mates while making new friends with other colleagues too. We enjoyed the entire local feast of a traditional Oktoberfest experience: pork knuckles, roast chicken, sausages, and of course, the delicious Munich beer…

It was so much fun to be one of the attendees at this gathering, and we are all very much looking forward to Oktoberfest 2014! Prost!!
