Frauensenf

Monday, September 6th, 2010

Na, gut, vielleicht “geben Frauen gerne ihren Senf dazu”. Aber what the heck ist Frauensenf? Bei Wikipedia fehlt da noch ein Eintrag… vielleicht kann sich da mal jemand drum kümmern?

Das “Ministerium für …, Bau und …” macht seinem Namen alle Ehre

Monday, May 5th, 2008

Abgesehen davon, dass das Ministerium nicht mehr “Ministerium für Verkehr, Bau- und Wohnungswesen” heißt, sondern “Ministerium für Verkehr, Bau und Stadtentwicklung”, ist es wohl bezeichnend für dieses Ministerium – mit Sitz unter anderem in der Invalidenstraße 44 -, dass es tatsächlich selbst sein bester Kunde zu sein scheint… Ist doch die Baustelle am Dienstgebäude Ecke […]

Tokyo sunset – the sky is burning

Wednesday, September 12th, 2007

After some more rain but yet an other exciting day in Tokyo the sky was burning behind the skyline. Seen here from Odaiba with a few on Rainbow Bridge.

Tokyo in the mist

Wednesday, September 12th, 2007

It’s foggy and rainy here in Tokyo lately, which makes the city even more cinematic, especially in the evenings and in the night. The air is so humid and warm though, that some people had a nice idea: if you search for “tokyo mist” on google you’ll find this: “Dry Mist to Cool People Down”. […]

Another animal came to visit us

Saturday, June 30th, 2007

I was happy to find a little Silver-studded Blue (Plebeius argus) on our roof garden in the middle of Berlin today. What a beautiful animal!

Who knows this animal!?

Sunday, June 10th, 2007

This is a call for help: Today there was a strange little visitor on our roof garden. A very small and tiny (about 5 mm long) little white and hairy animal. You could clearly see it has a little “nose” or face which had a sandy colour and at his back it seemed to have […]

Easter rabbits

Monday, April 9th, 2007

I do not want to make the impression I am a rabbit fan or bunny maniac… although I have written about rabbits several times here so far. Well, this is just a post for Easter. Some rabbits I found on the way walking around in Berlin Mitte yesterday. To everyone reading this: hope you have […]

A very special anti-theft device

Sunday, November 26th, 2006

The gardeners of Berlin ‘Tiergarten’ seem to be very progressive. They have installed anti-theft devices for certain plants, as a sign indicates saying “secured against theft” (in German: “Gegen Diebstahl gesichert”). Next time I’ll drive by there, I might be tempted to check out how this device actually works!? So far I could not find […]

Synersis before the Match – “Anschwitzen” für’s Viertelfinale

Friday, June 30th, 2006

I admit – I have missed watching the last football match the Germans played. Today though, I decided to get “prepared” for the match tomorrow against Argentina and read two German articles… Christian Gödecke writes on SPIEGEL, that the Argentinians think to need “god’s help” because the German team is one that is not going […]

FIFA inspires

Thursday, June 1st, 2006

Just something I find a very nice idea my brilliant nice Jana had: to paint flags not only on faces (it seems like you can buy make-up in shops all over Germany) but on your finger nails.
