We actually encountered a sunny heat wave on the Rhine and Mosel in
October 2001. Apart from the evenings getting a bit chilly the weather
was amazing.

You must have some empowered teachers in Paris. In Italy, if a teacher
so much as disagrees with a child, the parents are in the principal's
office by 4 PM breathing fire.

We've heard of parents who complained because:

1) the teacher gave their child nightmares by explaining that the
Egyptian mummies were dead bodies.

2) the teacher humiliated their child by making her exit from the
classroom at the end of the line because she had been unruly all
morning.

Ordering a nice photo book at Amazon could even spar the tiresome
travelling.

If their kids know everything, why do they send them to school?

(Wouldn't it be much more nightmarish if mummies were *living bodies*?)

Interesting. I just open the front (or back) door, and it's there.

There is a reason for that. The weather is much nicer. I have been there
twice at the end of April / early May. In the north the leves were just
starting to come out and spring bulbs were blooming. We had pleasant days
and cool nights.

I didn't stay in the centre of Munich during the Oktoberfest. I did pay exactly
the same rate during the Oktoberfest as I did during the rest of the year.

Magda the Oktoberfest isn't in summer.

Oktoberfest in the first week of April? Get a grip Lennart.

It looks like you need better luck with your choice of where to stay.
