We moved into our apartment yesterday – we have 99 stairs to climb!
It has a very nice kitchen that is painted red. The ‘lounge’ room area is large so I will be able to draw while I look for a studio to paint in. I have only been to one art exhibition this whole week, it was in an amazing old building in Wedding. The exhibition was by two girls who went to other exhibitions and stole the beer bottles. (Here in Germany, you can return your glass/plastic/cans to most supermarkets -there’s a recycle machine- in exchange for money.) With that money they bought the beer for their opening. The beer was the art as were the flyers of the shows they went to and took the beer bottles from.
We have visited some amazing places, such as the Berliner Dom and Mauer Park. Mauer ( wall ) Park is a large flea market on Sundays, which runs along the wall walk, there is a lot of junk to see/ buy, food to eat and music to hear.
The public transport system here is amazing, it is reliable and the longest I have had to wait for a train is 10 minutes. It costs roughly around the same amount as Melbourne (maybe a few dollars cheaper).
Everyone seems to own a dog, a bike, a baby!
I think we’re settling in ok – I really need some German lessons, the course I did in Melbourne was too long ago and I have unfortunately forgotten most of it. I am looking to enroll somewhere soon.
I miss my mum terribly.
