After the opening it was straight to Berlin for the Berlin Art Book Fair. I would be getting there on Day 2 of it, but Dennis was there already and manning the table we had split.
This was a weird structure at the Munich airport.
The location of the book fair was a 10 min cab ride from the Berlin airport. Chill.
After the fair, we headed back to Dennis’ place. This dude was passed out on the train and his 2 dogs would bark at anyone coming near him. It was awesome.
But as soon as the next stop, the cops came and got him.
We got off on our stop and this tripper barged on Dennis.
Berlin is cool.
Dennis was subletting Beaver’s place. I stayed there 1 night because cousin Rob was still in Munich. This ice cream cone was in the little front door lobby area.
We hit the streets with some beers.
Day 2 and there was 2 ice creams cones this time.
Went cruising for some breakfast.
Then back to the book fair for the last day.
Our table was right in between Claudio (Pogo Books) and Sergej (Sergej Vutuc), so we had the best spot in the whole place.
After the book fair, went and chilled at cousin Rob’s place. The next morning we went for some breakfast and beers.
Rob gave Dave 2 tattoos, but Dave didn’t give Rob any.
Then we hit the streets again.
Dave had to go to Copenhagen for a day and then back to New York. I had one more day in Berlin.
I met Meloo in LA randomly years ago. We re-connected at the book fair and he is now carrying our zines and books at his store, In Surgo.
I always love these hand painted movie posters.
He has a rad toilet too.
We went cruising.
Alexander Platz needle.
There is a chill lake near Rob’s house.
Ball is life.
Sick Dr. Doom.
One last pretzel and weird sausage. I had a such a cool time in Germany, I told everyone there that I will come back once a year. In fact, I have never wrote out budgets before, but I have done it for the next few months and I am sure I can map out next year and get back there.
