    A Lone Turk at the Crystal Palace

    August 27, 2016 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    Picked up my bike today in Brixton, happy to be surrounded by Caribbean people. In honor of Celeste Olalquiaga's fabulous book The Artificial Kingdom, I decided to head from Brixton up to the Crystal Palace, where you can the remains of this paragon of Victoria architecture which was built in 1851 after industrialization permitted the manufacture of large glass panes (see en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Crystal_Palace). All that's left is the stone surround and this statue overlooking it.

    Then, I headed off to the land North of the River on the first stop on my cheese pilgrimage: the Neal's Yard Dairy. The shop was everything I had imagined, and one of the cheesemongers gave me tastes of everything! Sadly, the camera on my phone went berserk and wouldn't focus on anything, so I give you blurry pictures of delicious cheese...

    Later on, I met up with my fabulous student Jacob, who just filed his dissertation at the London School of Economics! We went to place for cute drinks called Oriole in the Borough Square Market on Poultry Lane. It was a bit over the top, especially the "blue" corn in a pisco-sour-influenced drink that was actually baby corn soaked in blue food coloring (for real). A world of Orientalist nostalgia in liquor!

    London Bromley

    May 28, 2016 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 12 °C

    23.03 Ortszeit habe ich es auch endlich zu meiner Gastfamilie geschafft ... .Erster Eindruck ist sehr positiv.

    Ich kam erst so spät an, da der Bus noch zusätzlich 2 Stunden länger in der Passkontrolle brauchte. Es wurden 2 Passagiere nicht durchgelassen, erst nach mehrmaligen Hin und Her ging es irgendwann weiter.
    Ein abschließender Gedanke noch zur Busfahrt: Egal wie lange ich nochmal mit einem Bus fahren werde, diese abenteuerliche Fahrt mit all seinen Komplikationen wird wohl unvergesslich bleiben.

    Es ist ein riesengroßes und luxuriöses Haus in dem wohne. Es sind an die 12 Zimmer und zusätzlich gibt es auch noch einen schönen Garten. Ich schlafe im Dachstuhl und habe somit einen schönen Rundblick.

    The start of my journey west. My first trip to the US begins on Sunday. Last bits and pieces are being sorted and nerves are kicking in. Another adventure, a brand new job, with new challenges and exciting journeys to be had.
    A Whole New World you might say.
