Silke: “For me happiness is freedom and to be at peace with myself”

The Laternenfest of Bad Homburg becomes more of a village party at the moment in which local residents share night, beer and music. The soul of the town is reflected in The Lantern Festival as in every step of the way, neighbours greet each other and remember good old days. At the point of having heard and sort of danced a live concert of basic oldies, Silke feels ready to do her American Shot. She has been a witness of the prior interview done in the night, Josch’s, and feels comfortable with living the experience. Beer allows words flow and directs them the way from the heart to the outside.

Josch: “For me happiness is everything I have: my wife and my son”

The village of Bad Homburg prepares itself during all the summer for celebrating the Laternenfest, translated as The Lantern Festival. From the 28th to the 31st of August, groups of music, food stalls, beer, coloured lighting, fairground rides and parade of carriages of different topics gather all the neighbourhood of Bad Homburg. During my stay in the town, I was lucky I could take part in this 80-year anniversary of the festival. Many festivalgoers witness this event year after year. One of them is Joachim, a man whose celebration mode is always on and whose sentences are always completed with a derisive laughter.
