An American birthday in Germany

It was one of my (American) friends' birthday, so we got together at our (German) friend's house to celebrate. We enjoyed some wine from the Mosel region (sweet white German wine, my favorite), told some (dirty) jokes, and ate sweets.

Then we loaded ourselves up like pack mules and hiked to some local castle ruins for a bonfire. We had ourselves in hysterics as we looked like a very strange religious procession. One friend wore a Mexican blanket and the other wore a Teppich (rug). I was the least strange one in the group (for once) with just a book bag.

It was a fantastic night; we had a bonfire in the ruins, enjoyed some wine, listened to music, and enjoyed each other's company. It was such a lovely night and the first time I've ever celebrated someone's birthday at castle ruins.
