Big bands competing to attract crowds. Costumes galore, and not just any costumes but highly organized and decorative and expensive costumes. Costumes that make Americans Halloween costumes look like they were pulled out of a trash bin (but hey maybe they were). People partying in the streets. Partying in bars. Really, this is one.

I love living in Stuttgart but don't write about it often, so here's a glimpse into some of the best things to see and do in this city.

Sitting in this nearly empty apartment I don't have much to do at the moment. I've been slowly acquiring new furniture and trying to get the best deals I can find. So maybe I should back up a bit.
