I Want to Wash the Windows of the Fernsehturm

So I was sitting in the revolving restaurant in the Fernsehturm, sipping a lovely glass of champagne with a friend, admiring the setting sun and the vastness of Berlin sprawling to the horizon in every direction, and a thought occurred to me: How do they wash the windows? I mean, check out this short video […]

Bye Bye Monbijouplatz, I Will/Won’t Miss You

As they say here in Europe, it is with one sad eye and one glad eye that I am planning to move from my current home on Monbijouplatz in Mitte, up north into Prenzlauerberg. It’s hard to believe that I’ve been here nine months already, because I honestly never felt like I finished moving in. […]

Colors@Concorde: The Fresh And French Party

In the world of all that is hip in Berlin, sometimes the central-western kiezes (especially Charlottenberg and Wilmersdorf) feel a little left out of the buzz, despite being “juuuust a bit outside” the HIP ZONE.  My Prenzlauerberg/Mitte/Kreuzberg rooted neighbors will tell you that’s because there is nothing over there that is hip enough to buzz […]

Five Great Films At Berlinale 2012

The Berlinale is the second most important film festival in the world after Cannes, and living in Berlin means I have the incredible privilege of being able to experience groundbreaking movies, the glamor of the red carpet and wild parties with romping glitterati year after year. Getting tickets to Berlinale movies as a member of […]

On Public Nudity

So, I am not some kind of nudity freak, but you might at first have a different impression once you realize I have more than one blog post about the subject.  I am still shocked and embarrassed every summer at the plethora of tits and ass and even the Full Monty blatantly frolicking in Tiergarten.  […]

Getting Naked With The Doctor

My first visit to a physician in Europe…a simple physical required by my company to start employment.  Totally routine, no problem!  I was called from the small waiting room into the back, and was a bit surprised to see that I was in an actual office.  The office of the doctor, with a desk and […]

Tongue Twisting German

Foreigners to Germany attempting to speak the language are a great source of amusement for the locals – trust me, I know this for a fact. Even after one makes it past the first 2 years of monotonous-machine-gun-rat-a-tat-tat and is able to discern that there are actually spaces between words here and there, the venture […]
