Fedoras - not just for palaeontologists anymore!

Stereotypes were adopted for a reason, and this afternoon I was delighted to come across this group of people playing Alphörner while dressed as Bavarians (e.g. wearing Lederhosen and fedoras). For the record, though, Schwäbisch Hall is not actually in Bavaria or in the Alps, but this is of minor importance.

I really feel that my German cultural experience is now complete. This was almost as great as when I moved to Alberta and realized that some people really do dress like cowboys.
