in need of a break nothing's easier and better than just going for
a little trip to Berlin. Didn't have much planned before going on
this one. Met up with Aarhus friend and photographer Steffen (a.k.a.
Jint) when down
there and we hung out a bit soaking up the atmosphere.
On the first night I accidently discovered that Austrialian trio
The Necks were playing at Haus Der Kulturen Der Welt at the Tiergarten.
Lucky me! Went there. Was extremely tired from the early departure
from home that day. I dozed off a few times during the show. Very
comfortable seating and the repetitive music just rolled over me
in waves. Despite my tired state I seemed to absorb and assimilate
the whole thing. Because it was an utterly beautiful experience.
I also dropped by some of the places in Berlin I like the most:
Intersoup and Antje Öklesund. That is, besides the record stores
which of course I was checking out as well.
Chilling in the Friedrichshain park.
Der Kulturel Der Welt at the Tiergarten.
