We got through our first day of this four-day festival, and the only thing that woke me was the sound of the truck cleaning the streets, this morning. There was a reggae band down the street that started at midnight and played to 6 a.m., but we didn’t hear it. Dawn and I made the mistake of buying “neuwein,” as our first cup, which has no alcohol and gives you diarrhea, according to our friends.

Here are some more pictures:
