Streetart Brooklyn and NYC Pt.1

So, first post.

I decided to start with my favorite topic, streetart of Brooklyn and New York City. I walked like a lot through town in the first two weeks of march 2015. I walked through snow, through rain, through sunshine. Alone and with friends. And I took some photos.

Truth be told: I didn’t enjoy New York it as much as the first time. It was a good time, but some times I felt alone and lonely, but watching some art that came from the streets and for the streets cheered me up quite a bit!

First part, here it comes the snowy day in Williamsburg

New York as a Tourist

Hello!
Actually this is exactly one year ago, and finally i am Posting IT today :)

Last weekend my friend Mai I met in New York visited me on her way home to Tokio, Japan. I was very happy, when she told me she is coming to my town Freiburg to meet me So I made some plans, what I could show her, what we could do and especially what we are about to eat!

So this is also kind of a little Tour Guide for you as well ;)

After work I went straight to the trainstation to pick Mai up, unfortunately we missed each other and so I went to the hotel she was staying in near by. She haven’t arrived yet so I waited for her some time and when she finally showed up I was so overwhelmed to meet her again!!!

I waited for her in the lobby for she could bring her stuff to her room. We walked through the city, I showed her some place but we both were starving. So I took her to one of my favorite places “Oma’s Küche” (granny’s kitchen) and we had dinner. Yummy!!!

I had “Käsespätzle” and a “Radler” (beer mixed with sprite), Mai had the same, for I highly recommended Käsespätzle (and I always do!)

After dinner we went to the place I regularly go every thursday. “Freiburg Bar” for tonight’s karaoke night. It was sick! And with sick I mean great! It was the first time, Mai sang karaoke in front of more than a box full of people. You know, in Japan it is “tradition” to sing karaoke in boxes and not in front of an audience.

But when “Ich war noch niemals in New York” came up we were partying so hard, happy about the here and now and happy about having met one year ago in NYC!!!

After the last song (2am) I brought her to her hotel and I went straight to bed, for I had to get up in the morning for work, as I have to every day :P

Mai visited me at work and I showed her around.
