Hessentag in Oberursel

Yesterday evening, a friend called me, persuading me to join her on a visit to the Hessentag fest.

Well, what was supposed to be one hour at a quiet corner of the Hessentag activities, turned into a beach party with blaring music within 10 minutes after our arrival. I had just gotten myself comfortable in a lounge chair when the loudspeakers came on behind us and a young woman started to accompany some party songs with her saxophone.

She played really well,  and I closed my eyes and dozed off, nevertheless.

Then I was dragged on for a little tour of the Hessentag activities, but after a while they all looked the same. Loud music, young people, happy faces, food and drink galore.

Unfortunately,  the U-Bahn does not have its train departure announcements set right. Trains are supposed to run in 15-minute intervals, but the message read: Next train – in 49 minutes. I was not willing to wait, so we actually walked home.

We could have called a cab – as a matter of fact, there were quite a few on the road that night – but the night temperature felt good and I have always enjoyed walking. I still would rather walk 40 minutes than wait 49 minutes.
