Summer Edition `012 Day 22, 19th of August: Bäst Kladdkåka

Today is sunday and actually a sunday I really liked. Most of the time I think sundays are too slow, but this one was perfect =)

beautiful girl on the flea market in 50s style and tattoos :)

First I went to the book fleamarket at the Festivalveckan pa Drottninggatan. I bought an english copy of Paul Auster’s “New York Trilogy”- of course! Yesterday when I met Kathi’s flatmate Kristin we talked a lot about books and especially “The Brooklyn Follies” which is just awesome! (Also by Paul Auster…) I bought the book for 40kr. and gave my book Life of Pi” to Peter. I didn’t want to carry it along.

I met the others again in the middle of the day we also walked down the street. We also went to Gamla Stan and a very sweet cafe in a great location “Rosen Cafe” but please don’t expect too much for the cake… The toilet is very sweet I can tell that! (Not that the cake was aweful, it was just really tiny and therefor expensive, I wasn’t satisfied.)

We passsed the most strange 2nd hand store in the Universe & sat down by the river /sea/water/whatever.

Took a ferry to Djurgarden and walked to Rosendals Slott & a greenhouse area where the best kladdkaka is!!!!

If you are in STKHLM you HAVE to go there like once a week! I didn’t eat this cake today but I will go there tomorrow again! Finally I said goodbye to my friends for they are leaving tomorrow for germany. I was glad I could hang around with them and who knows when we will meet again!

Had dinner at Vapiano which is much more expensive than in G-ny.

Summer Edition ’012 Day 19, 16th of August: Surprise

That was actually pretty strange: all of the time I was like: Oh My God, the 1 year anniversary  ith NY is coing up. On the 14th when I had it, not with Manhatten but Queens and Brooklyn, I forgot about it completely! And now I just recognized that!

Is it strange, even though  my mother togue is german I am blogging & writing diary in english? Not talking about my songs as well?! Maybe it is a save-mechanism but also because I love, L.O.V.E. the english  language and still training, rehearsing and learning of course! At home beside my bed lies the 2 kg heavy Oxford Advcnced Learner`s Dictionary…

But as an artist I can write howeverthefuck I want to & believe in =) My luck, I don’t have to write serious papers anymore!!!

So… Torsdåg (thursday) Peter wrote me to meet up at T-Centralen around high noon what I didn’t know: He didn’t tell the others so it was kind of a surprise for them (not for Sarah for she figured that out actually ;) ) So I spent my day with the 5 of them.

We were hanging around Stockholm’s Kulturfestivalen like on every stage and area, or at least almost.

When we got pretty hungry we were searching for a place to eat, went to Mariatorget to find something when suddenly it began to pour like cats & dogs! (14th street is gonna drown…) So we got into the “rainpub”, a pub you probably just get into when it is raining like that! Someone should call a pub like that! But we kinda had something to eat there! Don’t ask, wasn’t that good anyhow.

So we seperated and wanted to meet again at 6pm at a stage “Brunkebergstorg”. In the meantime I visited the Kulturhuset to find that I can play Keyboards there to practice at least the piano a little bit! The top of the building is worth going up! Nice cafe with flowers and bees!

I told you. Beekeeping

some arts inside

So at the Brunkersbergtorg we saw Lena Swanberg in the beginning I was talking to her afterwards (business of course!) Linneá Olsson who was all alone playing cello over a looper was the 2nd act in the evening. She inspired me & motivated me very much!!!

saw Linnea just walking to her gig

And finally we saw Ola Salo in the ending! He was sining with the swedish radio sinfoniorchestra which was very great! And he is playing Jesus in Jeses Christ Superstar in Stockholm.

The Festivalveack is completely for free and on sunday there will be a huge book flea market which I won’t miss of course!!!
