Well... that was different.

I got up this morning a little before 6am. That's not so unusual. I was planning to get up around 6:15am, so it is a little early, but the concern here is the manner in which I awoke.

I was awakened by a parade.

At 6am this morning, a parade of - what appeared to be about 60 some students - clammered past my apartment. No, not past. More like through. Banging on pots and pans, wailing on air-horns, and beating on little drums, they rolled through the neighborhood. The sat on my door-bell for about five minutes, so I moved from the window-sill where I'd been watching the parade move in, and opened the door. Once there, two German guys started beating vigorously on the bottom of their pots and pans, and shouted "WAKE UP!" (they said it in German, though)

Very... unusual.

I wish I knew what was going on.
