wanderlust







with the official summer vacation starting the day after tomorrow in Berlin, we feel a big wanderlust, used to traveling a lot, the hole family is irritated by the idea of staying at home and at the lake.
Yesterday Lou and I stumbled upon this little asian market in a park in the west of the city. We found it by chance on our way to another fleemarket, our new weekend ritual. We saw all the umbrellas and tents in the small park and we were curious to find out what they were protecting, to our big surprise and her total joy we learned it was the thaifoodmarket which is hold every weekend by thais living here. They are cooking meals in improvised streetkitchens . I heard about it but never found my way, nor did I knew where exactly it takes place.
We called L to join us and had a delicious late lunch, on very pink plastic stools in drissling rain, embedded in the calming chitchat of the thaiwomen, the familiar smell of the wonderful food, comforted by memories to our long and very special stay in asia last winter.
Like always I admired their art of professional improvisation.

Oh, that sounds and looks so wonderful...
Are you willing to share the secret location?

MY OTHER ROOM said...

no secret, sharing everytime, everybody I told about the market seemed to know it anyway, I just forgot to write where it is located, Preußenpark at Fehrbellinerplatz, late post after work!
D. would love to go there with you and B., Ku A.

wie sich alles zusammenfügt! zelte, das reisen in den eigenen wänden und der umgebung, wundervolle damen, asiatisches essen. ja, ein wirklich perfektes zusammenspiel. ich habe gestern über das ape café gelesen und herausgefunden, daß die idee auch aus berlin stammt. unsere kleinstfamilie überlegt gerade, ob wir nun nach oslo oder berlin umziehen sollen. danke also für einen weitern grund auf deutschter seite.
