Was ist Das?

We went out to dinner tonight and sat outside a restaurant on the "main square" in the AltStadt. There were several bachelor and bachelorette parties wandering about. One bachelor party group was especially entertaining. All of the guys were dressed up in standard Bavarian Lederhosen...except for the bachelor. He was dressed in the standard Bavarian woman's attire: a dirndl. This was quite amusing...especially as he was wearing a blond wig and the dirndl was short, showing off his legs. He made for a very unattractive woman.

This was one of those moments that I was kicking myself for not having my camera with me. A photo, or even some video, of this he/she would have been very amusing.

Carter saw this man/woman and said, "Was ist Das?" (what is that?!) We weren't quite sure how to explain. The response that Ben gave, "It's a man dressed up as a woman," didn't seem to satisfy Carter.

Note to self: stay home the day of the gay pride parade. If a transvestite is hard to explain, we have no hope for the floats and costumes that day.
