Rinke is standing behind a table full of glasses and pots filled with water. Water that he has scooped up with his hand from a mountain spring, so that is free of the dregs that get into it by pumping. He calls it ‘sehnsüchtiges Wasser’, yearning water. He serves it to the visitors, and tells them how he has acquired it. The pop music that can be heard in the background enhances the informal café atmosphere.
