I slept until 9 o’clock, made myself ready for the day (still have to take the painkillers) and went to the city, Tube Station: Liverpool Street =) Since now, it is 8pm I didn’tbtake the tube again, I walked all day, my foot hurts a little bit & both are very dirty (since I am only wearing flip flops)

I totally forgot to mention the first 10 songs on my 6-hour bus ride to LONDON!!!

1. The Little Mermaid- Under The Sea (haha, how great!)
2. Scumbucket- By The Way
3. MGM Studio Orchestra- Stunt Montage
4. Muse- Invincible
5. Rio Reiser- Wir Wollen Langeweile
6. Ratatat- Black Heroes
7. Movits!- Det vete fan
8. Aerogramme- The Question Is Complete
9. Coldplay- Yellow
10. An Albatross- The Psychonaut & The Rustbelt

And on my busride I had such a nice old woman next to me, we talked a little while & she reminded me of my granny…

After arriving in London I had to take the Tube from Victoria Bus Station to Westham, where I lived at Sharif’s place :) So happy to see him and the guys again. Because of the Paralympics he was 1 hour delayed and I was very… bad mooded :D

So, back to the other day I was just talking about:

So I walked down & up Brick Lane, I always wanted to go- many, like a dozen vintage stores but I wanted to have breakfast which was HARD TO FIND!!! (I don’t know, I am not well prepared!). Around noon I found a place where I had a “Smuesli” & a cupuccino- which wasn’t satisfying at all and so expensive, so I went to Tesco afterwards to buy some water, a cookie and a croissant… This was great & cheap! I love Tesco!

I walked to Tower Bridge, down the Thames, St- Pauls where someone was about to kill himself =( which is not a joke… People where staring & taking photos of him- DISGUTSTING! Still, I can’t believe it. And, as you know me, I was making space for my anger and shoted at them that they are disgusting…

I walked over Millenium Bridge still down the Thames (or up??? Well, direction from Tower Bridge to Buckingham), to the National Theatre, by the House of  Parliament, Big Ben, Westrminster Abbey to Buckingham Palace, The Viccy Fountain, St. James Park, Hyde Park down Oxford Street. Walk walk walk, with my broken (yes, broken) foot!

And, just another CRAZY stroy: Just when I was at the House of Parliament someone knocked my softly on my shoulder, I turned around and saw the two french students, who were also in my dorm at “Hatters” in Liverpool!!! SO FUNNY!!! Still the coincidents are on my side.

Waiting for the world to change- I’m CO² neutral

what is this graphic about?

As you proably know, to use the internet we need power and energy. To produce this energy many many many kinds of power houses have to run and they emit CO² which isn’t that good or our environment (and to reduce the emission of CO² they invented nuclear power houses, which is probably (watch out for my cynical tone) more dangerous than the CO² emission.

chemical structure

But what to do against it?

So where was I at the beginning? Right, our use of the internet. So we use the internet day by day, check FB, google, and blogs, blogs, blogs… I can’t reduce the emission of CO² but I can make it better… If I plant a tree… But, I have no land (indeed my parents have some, but I am not able to plant anything right now- I am lazy!)

So… someone else plants a tree for me, for trees (as almost every other plant) convert CO² into, omg chemistry come back to me please… Ok I won’t get it… Plants convert CO² into O² and something more through photosynthesis and we get healthy air again. And who plants a tree for me, these people here: http://www.kaufda.de/umwelt/

We also do reduce the CO² emissions if we eat meat free aka vegetarian and we save even more CO² emission (ca. 7 more) if we live vegan! Did you know that?

I really don’t want to missionaire but you have to think about what you are doing right now, for our planet (plant + e = planet) can’t bear this living any longer.

Think and change :)

NY Day 09: August 22nd 2011

The first day I slept very long although I have been woken up early by my nice flatmates (I hate those guys… Germans!) After showering & breakfast I made my homework and went to s’Nice (Vegetarian and Vegan food) to have a great & delicious carrot muffin with cream on it. Not mentioning the café latte for they have other size-understandings than in Europe.

After school we went to Lower East Side & South Street to watch Williamsburg Bridge & Manhatten Bridge from Manhattens point of view.

We had dinner at Katz’s Delicatessen, actually we wanted to go to Himalaya Café again but on mondays it’s closed. At Katz’s I had Kniffles, they are quared potatoes and they were okay.

The reason we went there was Arlene’s Grocery for the weekly monday nights live Rock’n’Roll Karaoke show… Of course I had to sing up for this opportunity. The other singers where quite good, it was pretty much fun and a “Holy Shit”. When I got on stage singing “London Calling” I first had to find the right height for my voice for Joe sang it really low, but I kinda made it :) It was great fun and many people, also the host of the show, liked it! We have been there until 1:15 am and then went home. Arelene’s is for free on mondays!

Nick & Norah’s Infinate Playlist was set here ;) I made this up.
