Karl May Fest, Radebeul
I'm off tomorrow night to the annual Karl May Fest in Radebeul, Germany, near Dresden -- a weekend with multiple Sauerkraut Cowboys and Indian Dreams in one of Germany's paramount Wild Western Spaces.
It's the first time I've been there since the Fest in 2005 -- which was so cold and wet that discomfort is my main memory...
This time I'm meeting friends there -- Dana Weber, who is doing her PhD on Karl May festivals, the German country singer Roland Heinrich, who is performing, and Nicolas Finke, who edits the Karl May & Co magazine.
