the good, the bad, the sheer

I just got back from visiting my lovely friend Ashley and some of her awesome crew in Berlin. What a terrific week, and a fabulous way to spend Thanksgiving -- in a big German apartment in Neukölln, filled with about 40 people from all around the world (and plenty of Brooklyn expats!). Other highlights of the journey included a 24-hour stint in Prague, "blind dining" at unsicht-Bar, wandering through the beautiful Christmas markets, and meeting my all-time favorite animal celeb, Knut the polar bear (he is addicted to fame and will swim up to you if you call his name or wave to him!!! Ahhh!!).
It was quite an inspirational trip and couldn't have come at a better time in my life. I enjoyed Germany quite a bit, and hope to return soon -- and ideally in the summer, next time.
