I met Kim Sunday at Berlin's Tegel Airport. After trying to figure out what terminal she was in, we were on our way in a cab to our hotel. We were starving as per usual and went to walk to this food truck festival I heard about. After being completely overwhelmed, we decided we should probably just go to a proper place to eat and relax.
