I appologize for the radio silence; I have moved into my apartment, but there's no internet (nor 3g service…), so I'm pretty much on my own, deserted island. Albeit a really beautiful one. It seems Germans are not the fastest in the internet department, so it looks like I will have to write my BA assignment at cafés around in the city. Huge bummer and an annoying stress factor. So here's a little of what I've been up to lately:
Last week, I met Jessica of Best Wishes From Berlin fame. She took my picture for the interview, and we had coffee and a good talk at Silo. The temperatures were high (20 degrees!) so it was a strange mix of fall and summer, and we enjoyed it outside.
I met Jamin for a coffee at Bully's Bakery. The sun was shining, and we had 10 months to catch up on.
And of course there's the apartment. It's very surreal to live there; I keep waiting for someone else to come home, but it's just me. I am enjoying unpacking; all my things have been tucked away in a storage room since August last year, so it's nice to rediscover things, books, and clothes. And I really enjoy making this place my own.
This week, I met Shirin for coffee at Tischendorf. We talked about Canada, Berlin and old times while the sun disappeared outside.
I'm trawling the streets for good cafés to work at as I really have to do my assignment for school (damn internet companies in Berlin!). Yesterday was k-fetisch near my home, today is Silo in Friedrichshain with Swedes Hanna and Johanna. It's great to have company.
