LomoPeople: Hippie-Grandpa

Which Berlin resident has not ever seen him? This hippie grandpa is to be found wherever there is music!

I’ve met this grandpa a few times.

Funny, colorfully dressed, dancing around and always with his bubble sword. You can meet him wherever there is music, and ask him what’s going on and expect a reliable answer .

I took this shot of him at the Carnival of Cultures (Karneval der Kulturen). On other Sundays you can spot him in the Wallpark (Mauerpark) singing karaoke and entertaining tourists.

I’ve also seen him in some festivals and holiday parades. He dances wildly, impersonates people, tells jokes, laughs and blows bubbles. Then suddenly he is gone again.

Whoever catches him gets the pot of gold!
