i am in berlin right now.

Saturday, July 9, 2011

walking around berlin with caroline, i had the (very delayed) realization that it really is so different from bavaria.  i say this about so many cities i visit but, "i could really live here one day."

row 1: berlin is one europe’s hot spots for dunkin donuts. need i even express how many times caroline and i took “donut breaks” while walking around the city? i feel like that’s just a given. you walk a mile, you get a donut. you see a sight, you get a donut. you wake up, you get a donut. it’s a pretty nice reward system, really.
row 2: berlin was caroline’s last big hurrah before heading back to america. we’d both been there before so we didn’t have much to see and do but enjoy the city and each other’s company. that was nice and relaxing.
row 3: i’m constantly on the lookout for real cookies when i’m out and about, traveling. so far, the best cities for real cookies = berlin and london. so naturally, while waiting for caroline’s train (very sadly waiting, might i add), we indulged in some of berlin’s finest american cookies. at least that part of the goodbye wasn’t sad.  come back soon, caroline!  i miss you already.

My awesome 1st cousin (who's just finished her doctorate in forensic psychology) is due in Berlin in a few weeks for a psych conference...

In the meantime, she's partying it up in Serbia (Novi Sad) at the Exit Festival (we're both Serbian, originally from the Fmr Yugoslavia), was in Barcelona and Rome before that, will be going to London to see my brother, the Netherlands...

I am uber jealous, as you can imagine, but happy for her first and foremost, heh heh.

You two could be sisters! A donut reward system would get me to do just about anything probably. Do they have the cream filled kind? I am such a sucker for those...

Dear Berlin,

We've never met.

But I think we'd like each other from the start.

Your name starts with B.

And mine with C.

Sincerely,

Christine

I like your donut reward system. I feel like the world would be a better place if all things were rewarded with fresh donuts!

Mighty Burns said...
