91/365: Rainer

He was a rower, but clearly not made of the same cloth as the rest of them, and had a fondness for homemade gadgets like sunglasses with rear-view mirrors that no one actually needs. He had crazy stories about how his boat sank in the Amazon while he was racing in Brazil in the 70s, and how he was bitten by fish. After I met him he began to pop up in the most unexpected places, like in the community band one day, where he played the digeridoo.
