Friday my (sweet) colleague Bernat asked me whether I know a bookshop in Berlin for English guidebooks: he was quite disappointed to know that I actually buy all my books on Amazon, but I was willing to help him anyway and for free! I’m so nice sometimes 😉
He was looking for the Lonely Planet‘s book for Poland and I obviously had a copy at home, so he visited me on Sunday 😳 . Cool, he and his friends planned to travel by car around Poland starting from Krakow and ending somewhere else after one week. I had such a great time suggesting some different routes via Warszawa, Gdańks, Malbork, Zakopane and so on: I wished I could have the chance to travel with him…
He was surprised to see my Lonely Planet‘s collection and wondering whether I was in all of the places whose I have the guidebook (unfortunately the answer is no) and whether I liked New York City. Well, we started a small conversation about that and we both agreed that NYC is ugly, dirty, decadent, messy but so fucking interesting (ilGrisa probably doesn’t agree). NYC is not a place, is a state of mind. I was just one week there and with just a touristic program, but I enjoyed the city so much, maybe because of the nice weather.
Btw, the weather is certainly the reason why I miss NYC now more than ever: I just wanna stroll around the village, Chinatown (eating that delicious green tea flavored ice cream), LES… and central park. I don’t like central park, I prefer the Tiergarten, but these days I’d like to visit Whole Food and have a picnic in central park.
Sunday I had my walk in the Charlottenburg Schloßpark and I felt even a little bit jet-lagged thinking about my first Sunday in NYC for the Sakura Matsuri 😀
New York is not for little pussies who scream
If you can’t stand the heat
Then get off my street
