A couple weekends ago, I escaped Berlin to Rome – my first visit to Italy and, naturally, my first visit to the Vatican City.
It was a short, four-night trip, with a lot of activities crammed in. Perhaps too many activities, but ultimately I think that I saw everything that one stereotypically goes to Rome […]
Tempelhofer Feld, with people and kites!
The weather in Berlin right now is incredibly warm – mid September and the temperatures are in the upper 20s.
Saturday I hung out with one of my colleagues, hitting up Preußenpark and it’s weekend Thai food market. I’m not sure about the exact history of the […]
Entering CupNoodles Museum
I spent Thursday taking a walk around Yokohama. Before today, as far as I was concerned, Yokohama might as well be Tokyo – but it’s not, in the way that Hartford is not New York City.
It does have a very nice old port and, armed with a map, I headed […]
I might note that the cream in the balls of the penis cake had a salty tang to it.

I love the Pumpkin Snaps, I can leave the Pumpkin Spice Popcorn. I’ll try the pasta sauce tonight

Yesterday I popped into a Spouts Market – an American Organic Supermarket chain that is challenging Whole Foods by being affordable.

My trip from Berlin to Seoul was long – and while none of the travel, in and of itself, was stressful, by the time I got to Seoul Saturday evening, I was completely […]
I want to tell you everything about my trip to Seoul – lots to tell, but I haven’t had time and, to be honest, the internet connection at my hotel (in one of the world’s most well connected countries) is a bit dodgy.
So you must wait.
However I wanted to share picture of my […]
I’m in Portland, Oregon. Home of so many wonderful things, including VooDoo Doughnuts, where good things come in pink boxes.
Pink boxes signal great doughnuts — and a long line, even at 5pm.
Three VooDoo Doughtnuts: The top is a “cock and balls”, then lower left is a dirty doughnut and on the […]
Sorry about my silence, but I was busy in Orlando, and then once I left Orlando I was incapacitated for a day or two: whilst in Bloomington I had my eyes examined and a tooth filled. Thankfully my Bloomington Dentist is totally awesome and very patient with my irrational behavior. Since getting back to Germany, […]
A couple weeks ago, just before Easter, I took a long lunch and wandered by Berlin’s branch of Galeries Lafayette, the French department store. It’s actually quite convenient to my office and since I had forgotten to prepare a dish for a party I was attending, it’s basement boutique grocery store gave me the opportunity […]
