Birthday, Part 3

March 28, 2019

Smalltown boy by Jimmy Sommerville here, right? Johan said to me yesterday that I pretty often look distressed, haha, so does he. I seem to have a thing for melancholic eyes.

We arrived at the Botanischer Garten station, Johan’s comment was Wow, am I that old? He’s been wanting to go there for a couple of years already, so he was very happy about the surprise.

Love this colour combination.


Love the tiles here. Berlin tiles hah.

And how pretty is this?

This makes my heart go boom.

Went inside the greenhouse and the humidity! Made my lens a bit blurry, gave a nice effect.

Johan filmed this, with my orange hair (bleaching process doesn’t make me look nice, but I hope the end result will be good, going to do something about it tonight, bleached more yesterday – never been this blonde before).

Super hot tropical climate.

The humidity made Johan’s hair all curly. His hair has turned so reddish lately.

Have this plant at home, love it. Don’t know the name though, feel free to share in the comments if you know it.

Comfy natural stools.

A choir of cacti singing Oh holy night. Like we did at Christmas in my childhood church, until the roof almost lifted.

Happy birthday Johan! After this, we decided to walk around in the area around the Botanical Gardens instead of going back to Mitte to visit an exhibtion I had planned to go to (toys from the Soviet Union time).

    Love that you start and end with photos of Johan so you can see his hair before and after the humidity!

    Hola, la planta que te gustó se llama “Cuerno de alce” (moose horn). Te leo desde Buenos Aires.

    Kan tipse deg om den norske artisten Cezinando som har en sang som heter Botanisk Hage. Videoen er spilt inn i Botanisher Garten i Berlin. Veldig fin!
    Du kan jo sjekke den ut på Youtube hvis du vil. 🙂
