back at warschauer straße

After a goodbye pint yesterday at the pub, a terrible early flight this morning and a short trip with the Regio I am back in Berlin. Back at Warschauer Straße. Ridiculous amount of coffee will bring me through the day.

Nach einer letzten pint im Pub gestern, einem fürchterlich frühen Flug (mit fürchterlich frühem Hasi-Tschüß-sagen) und einer ersten Fahrt mit dem Regio bin ich nun wieder in Berlin. An der Warschauer Straße um genau zu sein. Unmengen von Kaffee werden mich durch den – mittlerweile – grauen Tag bringen.

cycling londonWe spent a lovely day cycling around London with our really cool bikes, which Hasi had fixed. Hyde Park, Green Park, Big Ben, Embankment, Stand, Fleet Street, St. Paul’s, Barbican, Museum of London where we saw the Cycling in London exhibition, Old Street, Clerkenwell Road, Farrington, Holborne, Marylbone and than finally the pub to gain some forces. Now we are knocked. But it was so much fun.

Wir haben den ganzen Tag auf unseren sehr coolen Fahrrädern vebracht, die Hasi letzte Woche repariert hat. Hyde Park, Green Park, Big Ben, Embankment, Stand, Fleet Street, St. Paul’s, Barbican, Museum of London where we saw the Cycling in London exhibition, Old Street, Clerkenwell Road, Farrington, Holborne, Marylbone und dann ins Pub Kraft tanken. Nun sind wir ziemlich gerädert. Aber es war so lustig.

london west bank

While strolling around the neighbourhood Hasi and me stumbled over the great London West Bank gallery with pieces by Banksy and Art is Trash among others. Great collection. Definitely a place to check out.

Auf unserem Spaziergang haben Hasi und ich heute die London West Bank besucht, die wirklich gute Sachen von unter anderem Banksy und Art is Trash hatte. Wirklich zu empfehlen!

baker street

Baker Street is known for its tiles which depict the pipe that Sherlock Holmes was supposed to be smoking and in fact, London Underground tubes stations’ tiles are all very distinct for each station so that back 150 years ago people that wouldn’t know how to read would still know where they were.

I know where I am. I am with Hasi in London. Who just gave me a lecture on tubes and tiles.

grüner hirsch

Oha… this green fella is my new work co worker. I might be fighting a lost cause, but I sincerely hope he will collaborate towards a green future. I might be pushing it with my election campaign but there are only three days left.

Aha, das ist er nun. Mein neuer Arbeitskollege. Er heißt Hirsch. Ich kämpfe vielleicht einen verloren Kampf, aber es wäre ja schön, wenn Hirsch zur einer grüneren Zukunft beitragen könnte. Zu hoffen ist es ja. Vielleicht treibe ich es ja mit meiner versteckten Wahlkampagne zu bunt (oder zu grün, jijijiji…) aber schließlich wird in drei Tagen der neue Bundestag gewählt.


I’m on blog duty again. Hasi is busy and so was I. It’s London Design Week and I’ve been lucky enough to have been invited to the preview of They are exhibiting lots of lovely stuff. I could have spend so much more time and money in there. If, like me, you like letters, lovely prints and gorgeous furniture and homeware and happen to be in London for the next couple of days, I wholeheartedly recommend it. There is so much to see and so many new designers, furniture-makers and brands to discover.

Afterwards I popped in to which was very interesting. So many great objects, books, prints, items of furniture, lightning displays, etc … I felt like a kid in a candy store….

It’s a great week to be in London.

In one month the exhibition examples to follow! expeditions in aesthetics and sustainability, curated by Adrienne Goehler and assisted by me (jey!) will open in at the Capilla del Arte of the Universidad de las Americas Puebla in Mexico. And yes, there are millions of things that still need to be done but I am so much looking forward to it. The countdown has started.
