Summer Edition ‘012 Day 3, 31st of July: Bad Weather Day

Tuesdays are kind of, besides thursdays, my favorite days in the week, I can’t tell you why, that’s just the way it is. In school we were making a miniature Kimono, the 1st cut of Madeleine Vionnet, which looks like that: (also in miniature)

and some origami of course ;)

The weather was really strange, so the plan I made in the morning quickly went overboard and I wanted to look for a place to sit nice, drink something maybe some food.

But I did not really find a place!

I don’t know what I did wrong… I was by the Michel (St. Michaelis church), Central Station, City Hall aso…

Doris was very angry with me and because of that I decided to get back home. Very close to my friends place are some Döner Buden, and even one is said to be the best in town, so I had a veggie- döner and seriously it was quite tasty :)

Summer Edition ‘012 Day 2, 30th of August: 1st day at summer school

canal next to the university

Sitting at HAW, we’ve got out first break and I think it is amazing!

Hamburg reminded me of New York, Brooklyn in the morning =) So beautiful!!! (reminded me in particular od DeKalb Ave, in the mourn of Brooklyn Flea Market on saturday 19th last year).

When I got to the university, I’m taking the drape course, I was very overwhelmed. The building is a beauty itself! It’s got a nice cafe in it with old seats & couches, old lamps, origai animals aso.

CCTV isn’t watching you yet

First we were origamiing a kangaroo, the another folded thing, in the afternoon we started to drape a skirt with folds in the front which are seperated with a zipper.

After school I walked near the Alster & through a street called “Lange Reihe” where I have to go again!

boy on a buoy?

Finally bought a 2 weeks metro ticket which cost me 49,50 €! As expensive as New York, and NY is much bigger. And still, I have to admit, that Hamburg reminds me so much of NY! I am kind of glad that I am still missing it!

I met Chris at the Schanze and we went for dinner at “Kumpir”, a potato restaurant where I had potato with hummus, salads and so. Very delicious & cheap! Of course I had an “Alster Wasser” =)

actually it is not completely vegetarian, have a look on the menu:

We walked to Knust, Übel &Gefährlich, through St. Pauli and down to the river.

ice-cream first!

In the end I took the wrong subway, of course, and came back home late. Doris was very sleepy so I brought her quickly to bed.

(Kommentar Samstag Abend vor der Abreise: Aaaaah! Endlich Urlaub!!! Juhu!!!

Finlly the journey starts! I packed my backpack, guitar and tote bag & walked to the trainstation, OMG how heavy my luggage was!!! But I didn’t walk the whole way of course, we have trams here :)

The train ride was quiet fine, I listend mostly to Nada Surf, recognizing I missed to transform some LP onto my musical device I am using newly, whatever…

I read “Life of Pi” (Schiffbruch mit Tiger) this book is giving me strange feelings I don’t know yet which exactly.

We didn’t have delay (hooray!) and right now I am sitting on the couch of my friend Lisa in Hamburg.
Notice: To get a weekly ticket for Metro in Hamburg, you have to have a picture (must be a photo, not only a print!) of you. I hope I can get one somewhere tomorrow!

Now I have to go to sleep, 10 pm I am very sleepy since hours, I tried sleeping on the train but that did not really work out! Tomorrow my course is going to start! I am very excited about that!! I have to go to the subway station “Hoheluftbrücke” and take the U3 to “Uhlandstrasse” to get to the HAW in Armgartstrasse- I hope the weather will be fine!!!

view from the couch :)

Good night
