Berlin, Friedrichshain

Around the corner

July 22, 2018

This is where Peps and I go to play when she’s visiting. I won’t see her until August and I miss her SO MUCH already.

On Sundays and Mondays, she makes a lot of people, coming out of the club, happy.
This club is my favourite, much because I’m old and lazy and it’s only a 5 minutes walk home. And a hundred other reasons. Have you been?

The other week I posted these on my instagram stories and learned that you can make coffee substitute from its roots. Can’t remember the name of the plant now, though.

Thanks to the one who made this some years ago, makes me smile every time I go to the hardware store.

Sunday, what’s happening?
I’m working on my wholesale order again (had a 10 days break, tomorrow I will be half way through it) and will go to my friend Christopher’s new studio space for a barbecue, will try to remember to bring my camera.

    Yummy! The plant is called ‘Wegwarte’ in German.
    It’s very wonderful to read through all your posts.
    I must comment more often, I feel so moved by every single post of yours!

    That would be chicory! Haven’t tried chicory coffee, but it’s really popular in New Orleans.

    I think the root is called chicory. Been enjoying your blog for over 7 years! Lovely always. Lost my last pair of wrist worms, time to buy another I guess…
