KILL FRAU HOLLE
22. TÜRCHEN

Dienstag, Dezember 22nd, 2009

Snow is great, everyone loves snow. This includes me, I am also a “snow lover”. So, since I am such a big snow lover I did not mind to make an exciting trip to Gatwick Airport and back to Hackney since Frau Holle (Mother Hulda) likes to torture travellers by freezing runways, planes and railways.

COLOGNE CHRISTMAS MARKET
21. TÜRCHEN

Montag, Dezember 21st, 2009

As announced we have finally made it for some Glühwein und Bratwurst to the Christmas Market along the Thames (Waterloo) named after Cologne which made me expect thousands of people and stalls. But it was actually tiny, probably even less stalls than my small Swabian home town Aalen has to offer. Anyways, I have spotted something big at last: one mighty Wurst to rule them all!

OXFORD STREET…NOT!
20. TÜRCHEN

Sonntag, Dezember 20th, 2009

I have successfully avoided Oxford Street/Picadilly Circus this year for Christmas shopping. Thank you www. Instead we had some really tasty Indian food (Clipper!) on Bricklane, less busy less Christmassy. Thanks to two chili peppers I swallowed at once I had a very stubborn company all evening called hiccup.

HACKNEY BEFORE CHRISTMAS
18. TÜRCHEN

Freitag, Dezember 18th, 2009

Basically there are 4 ways how to kill the time till Christmas in Hackney:

1 – gamble outside Eddy’s Cafe
2 – light a fire in cars
3 – watching undelivered Season’s Greetings piling up
4 – taking blurry photos of the very first snow this winter

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

STEREOTYPES WELCOME

“Lowlee, lowlee” as the life-size German sausage with Santa hat commented in his stall on the German Christmas Market in London. I have not been there yet, but I am extremely optimistic to get some Bratwurst, Glühwein and Lebkuchen finally this weekend! Meanwhile I watch this little film. Lovely.

DR. PSYCHO
12. TÜRCHEN

Samstag, Dezember 12th, 2009

“Dr. Psycho” ist wohl eine der unterhaltsamsten und intelligentesten deutschen Serien, die ich in den letzten Jahren sah. Genial gespielt von Christian Ulmen und ergänzt durch bestens besetzte Nebenrollen werden die Lachmuskeln bis aufs Äußerste strapaziert. Zu schade, dass bereits nach der zweiten Staffel wegen spärlichen Einschaltquoten wieder Schluss ist. Armes Deutschland, wenn man sich die neuen Serienkonzepte der Privaten anschaut…

Ich empfehle euch wärmstens an diesen nass-kalten Winterabenden dieses Archiv zu Gemüte zu führen. Dort ist übrigens auch die legendäre Ulmen-Reihe “Mein neuer Freund” hinterlegt.

HONEY? YUMMY!
8. TÜRCHEN

Dienstag, Dezember 8th, 2009

Advertising starts: Once I had a cider labeled as “organic”. Probably the worst cider I ever tried. But this oganice beer that I am raising and praising here today, this one tastes like bees have never done anything else but producing the best honey just for the sake of adding something special to the brew kettle. Advertising ends.

FESTIVE HACKNEY
6. TÜRCHEN

Sonntag, Dezember 6th, 2009

Christmas is coming closer and closer, also here in Hackney. Witnessed by the light installation along Broadway Market and Mare Street, a huge reindeer projection and the friendly smiling ceiling decoration in the great Turkish restaurant next door.

A WEEKEND OF BELLY PLEASURE
1. TÜRCHEN

Dienstag, Dezember 1st, 2009

Alright, so this is the plan: since my blog had its hibernation in the summertime, I might try to do some kind of an Advent calendar till Christmas. Let’s see how many windows I can actually open before the next phase of blog silence =) A small note: the windows in the German Advent calendar are called “Türchen” (little doors)

I had my very first Thanksgiving Dinner last weekend. One massive turkey has been sacrificed for about 25 people, mainly from North America, a few from the UK and only 3 from “the Continent” including myself. The belly teasing continued on Sunday evening with a great cheese fondue at Andy’s house and some Swiss mates. All in all a perfect opening of the Christmas season.
