Geek sweat


As we approached the Grote Markt in Haarlem, Toby asked "Can you smell the geek sweat yet?" We were heading to Stripdagen, an annual comics festival. But it was by no means a geek convention- unlike some NZ comic conventions I've been to, there was a distinct lack of sci-fi trekkies. In fact, it was all rather cool.


And Toby's book Alledags- a year in Amsterdam was on sale! His book was being sold at the ABC stall alongside some comic greats such as Daniel Clowes and Charles Burns which was so nice to see.


But speaking of geeks, how cute is this guy? He was extremely blind but was avidly reading his new Asterix comic in the square. I swear his nose was touching the page.
