In Berlin without my camera, so this is all you get!
A nice, smelly café in Neukölln, Landwehrkanal in Kreuzberg, and the fairly newly opened Tempelhofer Feld, the former airport. It was both scary and fascinating to bike around the field on the old runways, which haven't been planted or landscaped in any way; it's just the old and very amazing airport building and a huge field of nothing. No lights, no benches, no installations. Just nothing. I like it!

There's a horse at the end of my street. Great, huh?
I walked past this sticker a couple of days ago and found it quite strange! I'm very pro-choice, but to actually love abortion, I'm not sure... Actually I'm not sure what I think. Maybe you can help me out?
Have a great weekend!

My friend's son, Erik, got registered as a proper Danish citizen this sunday (instead of getting baptized). And he got this cake, which I didn't like, since I'm not really a cake-person and especially not with banana and cocoa, but I LOVED the design, made by his dad. Nobody darred to eat it at first, because it looked like a fake cake you put in a window. But they slowly came crepping.

I ate three pizzas this weekend. Two of them were this pizza bianco with potato slices, rosemary and parmasan flakes. And of course - lodes and lodes and lodes of chili/garlic oil.
I normally don't cook the potato slices before, but I read somewhere that you should blanche them for 30 seconds in salty water. I did and I think I will do that next time too.

I just started reading Clemens Meyer's Als wir träumten/Dengang vi drømte/Back When We Had Dreams (2006 - very tentative English titel, don't know it), and it seems really promising. Mostly because I was told it was, but also because it takes place around the time of the fall of the Berlin wall and how this change affects the lives of a gang of boys from the former East Berlin.
I just finished Kazuo Ishiguro's classic The Remains of the Day (1989), which a friend of mine once gave me, but I never read until now; it's always like that when I see the adaption for film. But then again, when I see the film after I read the book, I'm always disappointed with the film - I recently felt like that with Norwegian Wood.
Before that I read Freedom, but I won't bother telling you how wonderful it is, since every critic in the world has already done so. But hey, read it. It's wonderful :)
And before that, I enjoyed Daniel Kehlmann's Die Vermessung der Welt/Opmålingen af verden/Measuring the World (2005). I have a thing for historic novels. This one is fiction, but the characters existed, which makes it that more exciting.
Enjoy - and please tell me what you read at the moment, I need inspiration!
Sorry about the blurry pictures. It's stupid to do it in the evening.

And it only gets better - this time of year is my absolute favourite. At the moment, you still see traces from summer, but colours are changing until it's finally all autumn, when you get to wear sweaters, light candles and drink coffee ALL THE TIME! Hooray + yipee!

Weather is changing at the moment; first lots of skies in different formations and then came the fog. Now it's slowly getting colder, but also clearer. I wish I could photograph stars - I tried with my new zoom lens, but it's not enough, I lack the skills!
PS. Don't you love that I made a tag called 'the weather'?
