Saturday, 20 August: an evening chez Tina Ellerkamp & Jörg Heitmann (directors / producers, killer berlin doc, etc.) to celebrate Tina's birthday, at their Mitte office / appartment with a huge rooftop terrace. It's been very hot all week, and as we arrive, we see their neighbours on both sides are enjoying dinners with friends on their terraces too : - )


Summer rolls (with tofu & with prawns). The knife stuck in the watermelon looks very killer-ish.

Plenty of grapes and cherry tomatoes for UsaKousa.

A side table full of nuts & chocolate.

I haven't managed to photograph the chicken satay or the vietnamese clear soup with prawns and veg, thai red coconut soup with tofu, etc. (all from the restaurant on the ground floor. Handy, eh?)
As it's pretty hot and humid, after we've grabbed our food and drink, we all take it outside.
UsaKousa with Natsumi - and a killer (Dagie Brundert, super8 film-maker) "inconspicuously" walks by in the background. Several other killers and people who worked on the film are also present this evening, it's nice to see them again.

Becks "green lemon" beer. Tastes like lager & lime, only sweeter and with far less alcohol content. UsaKousa decide to stick to white wine & Sekt.

The Japanese/Russian corner.

Our rug is so fluffy and soft, UsaKousa's cherry tomato sinks into it and remains embedded there. Soon the girls are horizontal too...
Much, much later on in the evening (morning?), the birthday girl puts on various presents she's been given and dances for the camera... and falls down tired, drunk and happy...

Here are 3 more drunken girls...

...Pelle is fast asleep by now.
We hit the road around 6AM, and as we come get off the U-Bahn at Nollendorfplatz, we see a nice pink sky greeting us and wishing us a good morning...
