Change and the elderly: Continuity is key

Cultural differences are plentiful in Germany, abroad

  • Apr 23, 2009 at 3:00PM

Once again I am writing from the beloved country of Germany. I enjoyed my last stay here so much, I just had to return while I was still in Europe. A few days ago, I had the privilege of attending Frühlingsfest (Spring Festival) here in Stuttgart. At first, the festival appeared to be just like any other amusement park, complete with roller coasters, bumper cars and lots of horrible food. However, I soon learned there was a difference between this festival and others I have been to when I entered one of the many beer tents. The name is misleading as they are not tents at all, but rather fairly large, one-room buildings where the only thing served is 1-litre mugs of beer. The common practice appears to be to invite a good band, play some good ol’ fashion music and sing loudly while jumping on tables. The interesting aspect is that many of the people jumping on the tables didn’t appear drunk at all, but rather just having a good time and enjoying an old German custom. Unfortunately, or luckily, depending on how you look at it and who you are (Rotary rules prevent exchange students from drinking, even in Germany where the drinking age is 16), we only were able to stay for about 20 minutes due to our unaccommodating bus schedule.
