Happy Tempelhofer. I know this is getting old but this Berlin version is cute for the bubble man, the lazy-dancing BBQers, and the hula hoopers.
The Northern Lights near Yellowknife, a couple nights ago. Unbelievable magic quilt of sky.
There is a direct flight from Frankfurt to Whitehorse—I only know because they were calling last call when I was there last.

I love this film so much, Little Big Berlin. Philipp Beuter dedicated his film “to Berlin where [he has] been living for 19 years now. While the architecture of Berlin is stunningly beautiful, only its inhabitants make Berlin the unique city that it is. In every corner there is something new to discover. And the best thing to do is to film it.
Filmed with [his] beloved Sony HC9. Edited with Sony Vegas Pro 9.The miniature effect is called tilt-shift, which originates from a particular lens that was used to photograph architecture. The miniature effect is a by-product of that. It can also be achieved by digital post processing.”
Music: “Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2” by Franz Liszt
I’ve signed up with a friend for the Nike women’s 10k, may 30th at 22:00—should be fun running through the city in the dark.
Badeschiff Easter Opening. Magnus helped his Mexican friend prep his delicious tacos—prawn/mango, pulled pork, and sweet potato/ black bean. And then a homemade cornmeal, raisin and walnut tamale wrapped in corn leaves. Including Taco Kween’s cart, 12 or so gourmet food carts form Bite Club collective. The Buns Mobile! was there too with their fat Jack Russell—he was roaming for scraps.
Haha breakfast (3 pieces of cake for 2). It’s going to get up to 21 degrees today and we’re going to a food and local design market at badeschiff. Super spring.
Now this is where I want to go! Thai Park in West Berlin. It’s an authentic Thai market made up of expanding rows of food stalls, run by skillful Thai cooks serving up difficult-to-find dishes. Every Sunday in Preußen park (Wilmersdorf).
Kptn. A. Müller bar in Friedrichshain. Ship-themed art and a good crowd. Their hours are relaxed: 18:00-5:00.
If I knew that today would be the last time I’d see you, I would hug you tight and pray the Lord be the keeper of your soul. If I knew that this would be the last time you pass through this door, I’d embrace you, kiss you, and call you back for one more. If I knew that this would be the last time I would hear your voice, I’d take hold of each word to be able to hear it over and over again. If I knew this is the last time I see you, I’d tell you I love you, and would not just assume foolishly you know it already.

Pages full of love, love, love and pain. What a brilliant writer.
Karl Marx Allee this evening.
Germans make BBQ sauce with instruction from Jamie Oliver. Intense.
They sell this handy anti-Putin splash at our corner store.It’s oxygenated!
Entrance renovations in Prenzlauer Berg. Not so many of these rough originals now that everything’s being gentrified. I heard, once, that Berlin has the most cranes after Abu Dhabi or some other hyper-developing place in the Middle East.
Victoria’s doing a Friday night yoga event. It’ll be bad ass like everything she does. Come join!
