A group of American expats celebrate an impromptu independence day event. Where else? But at the beer gardens in Munich. There is an estimated 350,000 Americans expats in Munich, significantly more during Oktoberfest, of course. So happy 234th birthday to the US, and happy celebration to all those Americans abroad. Of course, in Munich the US consulate always has an official event, but I think you’re better off choosing your favorite beer garden, where the kids can play and the adults can gather. That’s the beauty of a US celebration in Munich.
