Guten Morgen Xangaland!
This weekend Ryan and I attended the annual PigFest is Wittlich… It was a lot of fun… it’s kind of like a small town fair and luau all in one… we had a really good time. Of course we got a few pictures.
This is the main square of Wittlich.
A close up of this building just for my mom. Isn’t it gorgeous?
The clock tower.
Ryan and his boss MSgt Tuck standing in front of the midway.
Ryan made me take this picture… He thought you would all enjoy seeing this man cook at the biggest Wok we have ever seen!
No pig fest is complete without a pig!
Ryan was very disturbed at the family resemblance! LOL
Me with the pig… funny story here…
We were standing here and just after Ryan snapped this picture a hugely pregnant woman ran up to me and grabbed my arm… (she must have been a military wife since her husband had a buzz cut just like mine and of course they were obviously American) she screamed
“Oh my God! They DO kill the pig first before they do that right?”
I thought that she was joking so I laughed a little but she just stared at me in desperation for reassurance… I blurted..
“Of course they do…”
She said in a bit quieter of a scream…
“Oh thank goodness!”
And ran off gagging with her husband following after making his apologies.
Why do the weirdos flock to me? Someday I’ll have to tell all of you my women’s public restroom stories… weirdos all I tell you!
This of course is Ryan with his enormous pig sandwich. We got in line earlier in the day and bought this little token for €3.60 and then when they took the pig down and began carving it we got in line handed them our token and they handed us a slab of pig on a bun!
My pig sandwich after I removed half of it and put it on Ryan’s, it was quite tasty if not a bit disturbing after having images of THAT being done to a pig while it was alive, thanks to the hysterical woman from earlier.
And what is a PigFest without a little Spaghetti Eis? I promised I would have it again and take some pictures so here you are! These are not quite as artful as the ones from Bitburg but you get the idea. We got to watch them make it this time… They put the ice cream into this contraption that looks like it comes straight out of a Play Dough set. Then they squeeze it out into a bowl and smother it in fresh strawberry sauce and grated white chocolate! YUM
Well there you go, the annual Wittlich PigFest!
Next weekend we will be attending the annual Manderscheid Medieval Jousting Festival… We can’t wait it sounds like so much fun…
Song for the day? Nothing Else Matters by Apocolyptica… really loving this group by the by…
