Since we are back in Berlin time has been flying and I have not written one single entry in here … but have been working a lot in the new atelier, something I had not been able to do for much too long.
It is cold here, and cold weather is a good reason to go to the sauna …

Get a beer, dude!

beer heavens

A while back a friend of mine found out about Getränke Grabsch. Craving for his Reissdorf, we went to this very lovely small store in Lichterfelde.

is another less wellknown part of Berlin. But just another district like , or (It’s not all about the Bergs!). Maybe less “in” and scenic. The Grabsch store is somewhat hidden, and I get lost each time I go there.

Most of the time though, they are rather boring and annoying. Exceptions to the rule are always nice, and I just dig those giant poster walls in Mitte.
