Wednesday Wanderings (in four photos)

Wednesday, after work, I wandered through parts of Mitte — coming up with a few photographs.

This is the entrance to the future “U-Unter den Linden” along Friedrichstrasse. The new station will replace U-Französiche Strasse, once the extension of the U5 opens, thus creating an interchange station between the new U5 and the U6.

A Pervert’s Guide to the Miniatur Wunderland

Temporary Invalid once appeared in photos like this.

This past weekend I headed up to Hamburg in order to visit my favorite Temporary Invalid – ideal timing because he was mobile enough to get around, but not mobile enough to escape me.

Given that I’d never actually been to Hamburg’s biggest small attraction, the […]

Alternative London – Exploring Brick Lane

Saturday, before Book of Mormon, I headed over toward Brick Lane for the Alternative London tour – which is, basically, a tour of Brick Lane focusing on street art and graffiti. The tour is done on a donation basis – at the end of the tour you tip what you think the tour was worth.

My thoughts on the East Side Gallery

I realize, as I write this, that I am not about to post something that many of my Berlin friends will like, but I feel like saying it anyway.

But first — the East Side Gallery, a 1.3 kilometer long piece of the Berlin wall, is going to have a 22 meter piece taken out […]

My hard work is over. The Wyoming Monologues go on…

Strive On – The control of nature is won, not given.

As I noted at the beginning of February, my entry to the Wyoming Monologues was accepted and will be performed on March 8th at 9pm following a performance of the Vagina Monologues.

Writing my piece was an interesting exercise for me, mainly because […]

The week that was.

Friedrichstraße!

I really meant to blog sometime this week, but it escaped me – but now that it’s Saturday night, I have time.

Some how I managed to have something important (mostly fun) to do every single day of the week, after 4 o’clock. The icing on the cake was the fact that my […]

Going to Vienna to see nackte Männer (nude men!)

Leopold Museum with a man out front.

A month and a half ago, I thought my travel plans for 2012 were complete: All my trips were taken, save for the one at the end of the year, when I will escape the war zone that is Germany on New Year’s Eve.

Then I heard […]

Cool Berlin Art

Two weeks ago I went to Preview Berlin, an art fair held during Berlin Art Week.

These were two of my favorite — the top is by Patricia Waller, entitled, “Broken Heroes”. The bottom piece is Benedictions, 2012, by Lutz Wagner.

A Kreuzberg Balcony

My favorite touch is the framed twig on the wall behind the “girl”.

Queen Califia’s Magical Circle Garden

Saturday afternoon, after I left the warm embrace of Filter, I headed north to visit my ex-expat friends who used to live in Berlin.

As a guest I try to be easy going and non-demanding, going along with whatever my hosts suggest, and so I found myself at Queen Califia’s Magical Circle Garden, an absolutely […]
