In between days

Cherry-blossoms-january-berlin

Isn't it very early for cherry blossoms out of doors?

Cherry-tree-branches-buds

Anyhow, my branches are still in bud.

Bvg-#weilwirdichlieben

On my way to the office, I find myself walking down the platform to read all the whimsical, poetic billboards advertising the BVG.

Tiles-hansaplatz

While I'm there, I ogle the walls. How I wish I could raid the Industriekeramik stockpiles of yesteryear! I have been thinking very closely about tiles and struggling to find the magical third way: neither DIY shop nor noveau riche.

Florida-eis-ice-cream-berlin

A dear friend accompanied me to the newly opened voß tile shop in Spandau where we found some glimmerings of hope. Our reward: a visit to the two-storied Florida Eis ice cream parlor. (Yes, mint-chocolate chip!)

Amaryllis-bud

And my amaryllis is beginning to bud and I've eaten at Yami Yami four times in the last month and haven't been disappointed once: but on that and everything else, more anon.

Comments

I love the BVG, but I don't quite understand why it loves us?

Florida Eis! I, too, am a mint chocolate chip fan, though I have many detractors.

I travelled a lot, so I can say that the BVG is really the best public transport service of the world!
