First of all; thank you for all your sweet comments and emails, each one of them makes my day! Winter finally arrived today, and despite my cold feelings toward snow, it felt pretty good. Now the back of my head can also catch up with the fact that it's winter and not a never-ending November. The last few days have been great and filled with good company;
On Sunday, Klaus and I walked up to Five Elephant (Reichenberger Str. 101, Kreuzberg) for a Sunday coffee in the cold. The wind has been icy the last few days leading up to today's snow showers, and it all started on Sunday.
Sunday evening, I went to Prenzlauer Berg to have dinner with Anne and Mikkel. They are leaving Berlin next week (nooooo!), but we had such a great evening with pancakes en masse, lots of wine and long talks.
Today, Cordula and I went down to check the local cake shop I accidentally discovered in my kiez (dangerous). It was good, and I had a German Eierkuchen, which is like a slightly thicker Danish pancake with strawberry jam and powdered sugar. A very nice winter treat + coffee. (Madame Zucker, Wildenbruchplatz 5, Neukölln)
Later, I took the U8 into town to meet with Anne for some shopping. We mostly just decided to go have coffee at The Barn, where we thought big about the future and gossiped a little. Very nice.
Pictures of coffee from The Barn is becoming quite a regular thing on this blog...
