Driving in to the town of Bad Doberan is like coming home.For quite a number of years now, the Zappanale festival has become the place where I meet friends and listen to good music. Two of my favorite things.
This year, I arrived in Zappa Town around noon.
First things first, so I went to the expo in the centre of Bad Doberan.Before entering the actual expo (Cynthia Plaster Caster and her displays), I said hi to Robert, Dieter and Burkhard who, once again, had produced a fabulous expo.
I also picked up a set of DVDR's with recordings of the concerts that had been given in the main exhibition the previous year.
