Lugging my camera around my neck, a map or two in tow. Locals/Passers-by chatting away; they always sound interesting but I don't understand a word ~can't register~ with just body language to help interpret the conversation they could be having. Street signs, shop windows are just much more curious when covered in words I can't decipher. Walking down the street. Thrifting in the markets. Seeing artworks in the museums and the squares. I miss the feeling of being in a foreign city.

Bought a huge box of tomatoes from the market on Sunday. Been making bottles and bottles of sauce & chutney ever since. I think I'm obsessed with the idea of stocking up or bottling. Be it tomato sauce, tomato chutney or the kimchi I made last month. Which reminds me, we're running out.

We're either traveling or dreaming of traveling. We're currently stuck in the dreaming bit...

These photos are from our second time in Berlin. The first time we only had three days so we thought "second time round we'll give it a week and explore properly" and boy, were we wrong. Third time will be a month.
In that week, we did get to do a lot of things we'd been wanting to for a long time: visiting Hamburger Bahnhof and seeing Anselm Kiefer's work, chilling in Kreuzberg, Mitte, Prenzlauer Berg, Tiergarten but we hardly made a dent.

Berlin: from west to ost

Monday, January 25, 2010

Sorting through the hard drive, we found these pics from the last leg of our Europe trip last January. They're one year late, so let's call it an 'Anniversary' and post these pics up.

I can still feel the chills in my bones, my numbed extremities, Rudolph's nose and the hovering glow of the low angle winter sun plus mad mad shadows and silhouettes of buildings as we moved through the streets !

It was a sights and shopping-packed short stay. Thinking back, it stupefies me that we did do quite a bit.

As we speak, another trip to Berlin may be underway in a few of months time??? *fingers crossed*
